Vampires + Chocolate = Mayhem

My first ever short story in the Void City universe is up in this month's IGMS. It's about a newly turned vampire named Haley realizing she can no longer eat chocolate. A Godiva store is involved. If you like the books, you'll probably get a kick out of the story. If you haven't tried the books yet, at $2.50 an issue, IGMS is a cheaper way to give my writing a try.
It even has a cool illustration by Kevin Wasden.
This is the one that actually got me (jokingly) threatened by another author. For more about the threat and the making of "For Want of Chocolate" check out Edmund Schubert's blog Side-Show Freaks where he'll be posting an essay from me about that pretty soon.

I kind of tell it on Edmund's Side-show freaks blog, but I was a a group reading at Constellations 2008 when it happened. It was a very cool moment, because even the hard sci-fi authors on the panel stopped me afterward to say they enjoyed the story. Not that there is anything wrong with hard sci-fi (I really dig Doc Travis's Mars books), but that the story had corssover appeal was neat.
