Comments on ""Small Towns" on shelves in January/February issue of F&SF!" - Faerye Net 2012-01-13T20:46:45+00:00 2012-01-13T20:46:45+00:00 2012-01-13T20:46:45+00:00 <p>WOW – just finished ‘Conditional Love’. I’m speechless. I also feel bad for Minerva, left behind. Just… I’ll be watching for more from you…Thank you.</p> Lynnel 2012-01-13T20:07:49+00:00 2012-01-13T20:07:49+00:00 <p>Thank you so much for ‘Small Towns’! Fleur is an absolutely enchanting heroine, and I would love to see a longer story about her adventures.</p> <p>I am an embroiderer, and F&amp;SF subscriber, via Kindle, and I live in Medford, Oregon.</p> <p>When I was in High School, my English teacher had us write our own obituaries, and I think my epitaph would be apt for Fleur (unless, perhaps she’s immortal) – Her Fingers Flew Faster Than Hummingbird Wings.</p> <p>Thank you again, I thoroughly enjoyed it.</p> Lynnel 2012-01-13T10:03:05+00:00 2012-01-13T10:03:05+00:00 <p>Bill —</p> <p>Thanks! I know I’m complicating things by getting published somewhere other than Asimov’s, but I should work on lobbying the OES library regardless!</p> Felicity 2012-01-13T10:02:05+00:00 2012-01-13T10:02:05+00:00 <p>Allen — How delightful to see your comment, and also to find that I did “jump the line”! I’m glad you liked “Small Towns” (and “Apocalypse Daily”) and especially that you came by to tell me about it.</p> <p>Thanks!</p> Felicity 2012-01-07T17:15:48+00:00 2012-01-07T17:15:48+00:00 <p>Just finished reading it, and it’s excellent. Just like you said, it has a completely different flavor—it’s quite unlike the first story of yours I read, “Apocalypse Daily”. I’m fairly certain I wouldn’t have guessed they were by the same author.</p> Allen 2012-01-07T12:41:06+00:00 2012-01-07T12:41:06+00:00 <p>Looking forward to the new story. Congrats.</p> Bill Lamb 2012-01-07T08:33:22+00:00 2012-01-07T08:33:22+00:00 <p>Got my subscription copy in the mail a few days ago, and was excited to see your name in the TOC. Haven’t read it yet—I’m a few months behind in reading the sci-fi mags—but given that it’s one of yours, it will almost certainly jump the line and be read in the next few days!</p> Allen 2012-01-04T15:40:18+00:00 2012-01-04T15:40:18+00:00 <p>Tracy — I didn’t see that sand painting! Sad to say, the inspiration for this passage was two aerial photographs: before and after.</p> Felicity 2012-01-04T10:45:30+00:00 2012-01-04T10:45:30+00:00 <p>This passage brings to mind the Tibetan sand painting that was done at the Cleveland Museum of Art.</p> <p>Hmmm, I think the UMN bookstore is affiliated with B&amp;N. I wonder if they have it…</p> TAKugler 2012-01-03T23:35:59+00:00 2012-01-03T23:35:59+00:00 <p>Thanks, Jan. I’m so glad you like it :)</p> Felicity 2012-01-03T18:35:49+00:00 2012-01-03T18:35:49+00:00 <p>My appetite is whetted! That is a fantastic opening and I hope I’ll get to read the entire story.</p> <p>Love you always.</p> Jan Priddy
