another short story published

My novelette "The Hunt" is in the current issue of Continuum Science Fiction magazine. The issue is available for purchase at

"The Hunt" takes place at a spaceport called Rimifar Station and intertwines the stories of an assassin hunting for a bag of stolen pearls and two spoiled teenagers taking part in a scavenger hunt while their mothers' spaceship is in port.

The most exciting (and somewhat embarrassing) part of having "The Hunt" published was seeing my name on the cover above that of Greg Benford. I guess the names were listed in the order the stories appeared in the magazine. But still—my name was above Greg Benford's!
