It gives me great pleasure to announce that Dr. Stanley Schmidt is purchasing my short story, “The Chaplain’s Assistant,” for Analog Science Fiction & Fact magazine. This is my second sale to that market, and my third professional sale in the last 12 months. Really, after 17 years of nothing but rejections, and now three pro sales in under a year… a man could get used to this! Huge thanks to Dr. Schmidt, to whom I owe the utmost gratitude for his very kind responses, patient correction of my small goofs and errors, and his willingness to trust me with the valuable space in his august publication. Huzzah! I am officially an Analog recidivist! Celebration!
