Two Recent Acceptances

I'm excited to report that two of my stories have been accepted for publication recently. 

First, I had a story accepted for Ares Magazine.  This will be a revival of a gaming magazine from the '80s.  "The big idea is to fill a void — to publish a new magazine that combines a stand-alone, unique, playable board game in every issue with a collection of spectacular, new fiction."  Ares will be launching a Kickstarter campaign on January 1.  If successful, their first issue will appear a few months later.

My other acceptance was with Perihelion Science Fiction.  "The Unprofiteers" is my first attempt at humor, but the story is science fiction as well.  An odd mix, perhaps, but I'm sure many people recall Douglas Adams' works that blended humor with sci-fi.  (Please note that I'm not comparing myself to him; I'm simply drawing from a popular example.)
