Shiva, Open Your Eye


August 12, 2017 by Laird

My first pro sale, “Shiva, Open Your Eye,” appeared sixteen years ago this month in the Kate Wilhelm special edition of F&SF.

Space & Time lost the submission as did Writers of the Future. Talebones rejected it after one page. The Magazine of F&SF had it for about a week and sent me a brief, matter of fact acceptance note. Something along the lines of, thanks for the sub, check is en route.

Thank you, Gordon.

One thought on “Shiva, Open Your Eye

  1. Holy hell, I think I have that issue stashed in one of my manuscript/errata boxes. Gordon Van Gelder, in 1994, actually took the time to write a very useful 1-page critique of my first (pretty bad) novel. They don’t make editors like him so often anymore!
