Just in case I haven't mentioned it enough...

If you subscribe to the DSF mailing list that's my story you're reading this morning.

Aggy, half "OMG! Where can I hide?" and half "Wheeeee!"

Sorry Aggy, I was going to read it, but then I saw the language warning and stopped there.

Just kidding. Great story .

Excellent!

I subscribed just today. Hope I receive it.

I mean I subscribed today, not just for today.

I need to be more succinct.

Thanks, folks. Glad you enjoyed it.

When they sent me the "proof" of the email version a few weeks ago I was relieved to find it wasn't as "bad" as I remembered. :P (Self-doubt has a terrible memory.) But I never know how it will read to humanity at large.

Aggy, Hey! It's Friday!

Congratulations, loldoc!

Aggy, do you know when they'll publish it on the site? I'm not subscribed to DSF (scratch that, wasn't subscribed to DSF...fixed that now) but I'd like to read it.

My flash story "The Take" wherein I accidentally tuckerize Charles A. Tan is going to be e-mailed out by Daily Science Fiction in a few hours.

http://alexshvartsman.com/2012/03/11...ience-fiction/

Taylor: Aggy's story will be at dailysciencefiction.com this coming Friday and mine next Monday. It's always a week after the e-mail goes out.

Great story, Alex. A nice coincidence that the first DSF story I get in my inbox is from a fellow W1S1er.
