Story Sale: “Big Al Shepard Plays Baseball on the Moon” to Appear in InterGalactic Medicine Show

Back in November, I mentioned that I had sold a new story. That story is titled “Big Al Shepard Plays Baseball on the Moon.” Today I am pleased to announce that the story will be appearing in InterGalactic Medicine Show. My understanding is that it will appear in the upcoming issue, schedule to come out later this month in the January 2014 issue of the magazine.

This is a milestone story for me in many respects, but perhaps most significant is the fact that I sold my very first story to IGMS back in 2007–almost 7 years ago to the day. It’s nice to finally have another story in the magazine, especially this story, which I had a blast writing, and which covers two subjects close to my heart: baseball, and the Apollo moon landings.

Edmund Schubert, editor of IGMS, also usually publishes a “story-behind-the-story” blog post about each story in the magazine. I’ll let you know when that is available as well.

There are a lot of great stories published in IGMS, stories by folks like Mary Robinette Kowal, Brad Torgersen, Alex Shvartsman, Ferrett Steinmetz, Ken Liu, and Alethea Kontis. If you like what you see there, consider subscribing to the magazine.

Keep an eye out for the January 2014 issue of IGMS in the next week or two.
