Map of Seventeen

I found out this past weekend that my novelette, “Map of Seventeen”, will be published in the next installment of Viking’s YA anthology series that editors Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling are putting together.  So far Ellen and Terri have edited three in this series:  The Green Man: Tales from the Mythic Forest, The Faery Reel: Tales from the Twilight Realm, and Coyote Road: Trickster Tales, which will be released this July.  The next anthology will be The Beastly Bride.  I’m looking forward to it already, even though it won’t be published till 2009.

    Well done, Chris. I know you were worried about the length. Very cool.

    Thanks, Steve. Yeah, it was a novelette, and I always feel the longer a story is the harder it is to sell for a variety of reasons: first of all, the story has to hold a reader for a longer period of time than a short story, and then you also have issues of space in magazines and anthologies, so I’m happy it was able to hold Terri and Ellen.

    Has any relation to Ozaki’s “17 sai no chizu”?
    If so, Motoi feels fantastic.

    No, it only shares the same name as Ozaki’s “17 sai no chizu”. I stole that title from Ozaki’s song because it worked really well for my story, too. 🙂
