And here's a review of "Mars-side" I hadn't known about either.
And finally, here is the On the Premise "First" second-place contest winner, "To Wade Alone." This story comes from my unpublished collection/ thesis All Along the Pacific (the title is a nod to Bob Dylan). It is loosely, loosely based on my great-great aunt who worked in the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey circus at the turn of the last century. Do a search for "Bertha Carnahan" and circus or midget and you'll find many mentions of her.
Now it's back to work!
