Lost in a Vacuum

I’m thrilled to announce that my darkly humorous short story, “Lost in a Vacuum,” is up on Evil Girlfriend Media (EGM) Shorts today.

This story was my most-submitted story so far. It found the perfect home at EGM Shorts on the 21st submission. I am delighted that the editor, Jennifer Brozek bought it!

Humor is very subjective to begin with, and there aren’t a lot of speculative fiction markets that welcome dark humor. So finding a home for it was tough. This was the first story that I believed in enough to keep sending out after multiple rejections.

Along the way, the story got an “Honorable Mention” call-out on the Allegory ezine website.

One editor was kind enough to respond with a personal rejection saying that a story about the death of a pet was not a fit for a humorous anthology. They had a good point. In fiction, killing a pet is usually considered taboo.

So, I hope you read the story and that it makes you laugh.

Happy Writing ^_^
