Again, More Love for Stories for Chip

Love comes again for Stories for Chip: A Tribute to Samuel R Delany, this time from the good people at Blacknerdproblems.com .

A truly great collection of stories and essays in honour of an SF legend.

I’m truly honoured that my story got a recommendation:

“I recommend “Song for the Asking” by Carmelo Rafala, a story about a man who’s converted to his oppressor’s religion, only to spend his life trying to prove he’s a true believer. There’s the very real sense that, fail or succeed, he’ll never be fully embraced by the faith he tries to embody and serve.”

Now that sets the new year off on a pretty awesome tone.

More Love From The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction

Stories for Chip: A Tribute to Samuel R Delany continues to be the gift that keeps on giving.

Now The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction have weighed in with a brilliant review: “But every story here shines, not with the reflected light of Samuel Delany’s own genius but with the power and conviction and sheer narrative joy of each individual writer. There’s no better tribute than that to the enduring influence and imagination of a master artist.”
