A few months back I submitted a short story to Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine. The title of the story was A Growing Problem.
Long story short, they rejected the story.
Which is fine.
Because I can self-publish and get it out to the world in a matter of hours.
Which I did.
An anomaly appears in space, seemingly from nowhere. Derek Winston—whose wife just told him the worst news of his life—and his workmate are sent to investigate. What they find is unlike anything they or anyone has ever seen. But for Derek, their discovery helps him to deal with the terrible truth he learned.
One other thing to note. All my short story eBooks no longer contain only one story. Each one includes a bonus story in the cost. So when you buy one of my short stories, you are getting two for the price of one. Included with A Growing Problem is the short story Hollywood Brings World Peace.
That's it! Enjoy the story(ies). :)
