Reports of a Story Sighting

July 25th, 2012

I’ve heard reports that my story “Nahiku West” is now out and in the hands of subscribers to Analog Science Fiction & Fact. It’s the October issue, and I think it’s not generally available just yet — not surprising, given that it’s still July.

I’ll post more here as I learn more, but if you’ve seen the issue, please let me know.

    Thanks! Hope you enjoy it.

    Analog mag usually publishes about 2months ahead of time. So, an October issue in July is “norm”.

    I was one of the two that first tweeted you about Nahiku, (and that being the name of a rather famous little village on the Hana Hwy on Maui.

    Hi Bill — you’re right of course, and I should have remembered about the long lead times. I think if it had come in August I wouldn’t have been so startled. But July? Wow.

    Anyway, thank you for letting me know the story was out!! That made my day.

    Nahiku is indeed a little town here on Maui. It’s also the name of constellation we know in English as the Big Dipper, translating as “The Seven.” That appealed to me, so I used the name. 🙂

    You sparked a memory I had forgotten. I did know about the Big Dipper name, long ago. Thanks again. I continue to be impressed by your writing.
