See the December issue of Lost Pages for a happy holiday story.

Not to mention a lot of other cool stuff.

Great stuff and my copy of Meet Me in the Moon Room recently arrived downunder. It is a knock out collection. I wish we had more people writing as exciting as this in Australia, but then I suspect it probably wouldn't get published locally. Cheers.

Hi Ray

Just a quick note to say that I'm another keen reader of your stories downunder (New Zealand).

Are there any more stories in the pipeline due to be published?

Watch for the Arpil 04 issue of F&SF.

mmm. Just seen it - Gas. The April edition already on sale at Fictionwise.com. I'll purchase over the weekend (thank god for the internet and ebooks; I've never seen any of the major publications in NZ in hard copy).

The below is the best online bibliography that I can find for your work. Do you know of a better one (ie, is anything missing)? Also, given the nature of your short fiction I'd love to see what sort of novel you would write ... any plans in that direction?

Ray, is that the Glinky story?

Can't wait to read it.

And congrats on making the Nebula ballot for "The Wages of Syntax".

Tribeless. I'm pretty sure Ray has a complete bib on his Website. I don't know the URL off the top of my head, but I'm sure a quick Google search would take you to it.

I second Leslie, Ray. I read "Wages" and thought it was brilliant. I hope you win.

There is a updated bibliography at my web site (scroll to the bottom of the page). I add things when they are officially out. Okay, I add things when I can find the time.

Thanks, everyone, for the kind words about "Wages", too. I'm excited about it.

Leslie, no, "Gas" is not "Glinky."
Oddly, "Glinky" will also show up in the pages of F&SF in the future.

Have been continuing to read through the Meet me in the Moon Room and have been delighted every step of the way. Read My Mustache to my wife tonight and we we were both in stitches. It is a wonderful story that is so funny but at the same time it seems to say so much about relationships between people.

As a writer myself (Prime Books has recently published a collection of my stories), I am very interested in how you do it and get the stories to work as well as they do. Forgive me if I over analyze what you do, but it seems that you start with something ordinary mostly, give it an absurd twist and then place the twist back into an everyday relationship situation just to see what might happen.

Hello. I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed "Glinky" in the June '04 F&SF. It was thought-provoking and fun, and definitely a story that demands re-reading.

Hey no problem, Ray. :-) It's nice to be able to have a place to tell an author you appreciate his or her work.

By the way, can you tell us a little bit about the genesis of the story? Or do you prefer the story to speak for itself?

I never know what to say about stories. I don't even really understand how they come about. It's all pretty mysterious. I wrote this story for a Walter Jon Williams workshop in New Mexico. After a bunch of very smart people looked it over, I made some changes and sent it out into the wider world.

That's cool. The creative process is pretty mysterious. Anyway, I look forward to the next one. :-)
