A Pennant of My Own

With the Toronto Blue Jays winning the American League East division championship, I will shamelessly jump on the bandwagon by announcing the sale of my story “Most Valuable Player”, about a washed up baseball star who unexpectedly finds redemption in mathematics, to Analog Science Fiction and Fact. “MVP” is a companion piece to Ben Bova’s “Old Timer’s Game”, which appeared in our anthology Carbide Tipped Pens (Tor). This is my second sale to Analog, preceded by the Mars themed “Crimson Sky” in the July/August 2014 issue, which is a finalist for this year’s Prix Aurora Award in the category of Best Short Fiction English. Thank you Trevor Quachri…and go Jays go!
