This was my first professional sale, and it was a long time coming. I first submitted to The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in 2001 and received the first of many rejections. This story finally caught Gordon Van Gelder’s eye, and I’m really happy with it. It’s about family, genetics, and bison. Little, little bison.

You can find this story among others in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction July/August 2013.
