The latest Asimov’s is out with my short story, “Three Paintings.” The main character is an artist who has come up with an unusual experiment in creativity.
I have artist friends, so I wanted to make sure I didn’t create an artist who wouldn’t pass their verisimilitude test. So far, the two who’ve read the story said that I didn’t screw up too badly.
This is my 12th appearance in Asimov’s, starting with “Safety of the Herd” in 2002 (13th if I count a reprint of an Analog story that appeared in the Greek edition of Asimov’s). It is truly awesome to make a sale there. If you would have told me twenty years ago, the year I made my first professional sale, that I would be where I am today, I wouldn’t have believed you.
