Because it's a rather short list.  It's not for lack of writing or submitting, but I definitely did not burn it up on inundating the markets in 2011, I tell you.

Short Story

"Until We Are Naked Again Beneath the Mute Witness of Stars" Jabberwocky 5/Online


Poetry

"Cormac McCarthy's Mule Done Gone and Died" The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature

"Drifting Against the Shoals of Memory" Jabberwocky Online

"Catalogue" The Journal of Asian Martial Arts


ETA: You can find and read all of them online save "Catalogue."  Also, only the two Jabberwocky publications are speculative.  What?  Two mainstream/literary/whatever publications?  50/50?  Not intentional or planned or anything.  Just how them breaks break, yo.

I got one foot out of that speculative/genre ghetto.  Just call me master of the two worlds.

Admit it. You're just chasing after that well known hater of genre, the Pulitzer :)

But if I slip some magical realism in on 'em, then it's all subversive-like, and I could be all "neener-neener-neener."

Hey, if it worked for Garcia Marquez....

I'll brush up on my Espanol while I'm at it. Make it appear as if it's a true crossover effect, creating a positive though pretentious feedback loop. My odds should skyrocket, especially if I go ahead and have a B&W pensive auctorial headshot taken.

Got this on lockdown.

master of the two worlds.

Nice going -- I have aspirations in that direction myself. Seems like it was a quiet year for a lot of people...

Thanks.

re: quiet year--The more such posts I read through so far this week, the more it clicked. However, it says nothing of what appears to be a rather productive copy-making/progress year. It goes in cycles for me, and I've been focused more on the novel since the summer and not as spread thin on this, that, or the other short story.
