A sloppy rebirth and some news

I'm the laziest person ever. I left this site unattended for a year and a half, and I think it grew wild, unsociable, surly; it's even full of weeds and creepy creatures hiding in the corners. I guess I have to do something about it. But I'm the laziest person ever...

Gladly I have some announcements so I can say this blog is alive! ALIVE!


  • My short story "Ahuizotl" (first appeared in Historical Lovecraft and translated into English by Silvia Moreno-Garcia) is going to be reprinted in The Apex Book of World SF 3 by 2014. I'm so happy about this one since it was my first sale ever.

  • I've been publishing some flash fiction in the Mexican webzine Penumbria. It's a nonpaying market, but one that lets me experiment and whose creators I admire. besides it's started to get noticed by the Spanish-speaking SF community. They recently published a printed anthology with the best of their fist year online: Penumbria, Año I which includes my flash/mutant fiction "Caza de shoggoths. Colección grotesca."

  • I made my fist pro-sale! “In Xochitl in Cuicatl in Shub-Niggurath” will be part of Sword and Mythos, an upcoming Innsmouth Free Press anthology. The ToC is wonderful, I'll be sorrounded by great authors like E. Catherine Tobler and William Meikle.

  • I'm also thrilled to be featured in "Women to Read: New Voices," a list compiled by A.C. Wise with women who have made their first speculative fiction sale within the last two years. There are lots of great authors listed. Give it a read.

So, there you have it. This site is back from its ashes like Felix, the cat... or something like that. Thanks for reading.
