“The Plagiarist’s Wireless” to appear in FORTUNE: LOST AND FOUND

Fortune: Lost and Found to feature “The Plagiarist’s Wireless”

Omnium Gatherum has accepted my short story, “The Plagiarist’s Wireless,” for inclusion in its upcoming anthology, Fortune: Lost and Found. Originally published in issue #13 of Golden Visions of Fantasy and Science Fiction (January 2011), “The Plagiarist’s Wireless” is about a rock n’ roll journalist who tries to find out why an influential band abruptly disappeared back in 1977.

While fame and professional remuneration are certainly part of the story, they are not central, and I’ll leave it up to you to figure out how it fits into the anthology’s theme:

Capital, cash, gold, lucre — money makes the world go round. But fortunes easily gained are often painfully lost. Since the very first king pressed his face onto the very first coin no single thing has led so many to ruin. Fortune, it seems, has a dark side and a wickedly evil sense of humor. Curses, plagues and misfortunes rain down on those who dare to tip the scales in their own favor. Fortune: Lost and Found, edited by L.S. Murphy and Kate Jonez, is a collection of tales about  money and wealth and the potentially horrifying consequences of gaining or losing it.

Of course, you’ll have to actually read the story to figure out how it fits, so unless you have a copy of Golden Vision’s issue #13, you’ll have to pick up a copy of Fortune: Lost and Found. I’m pretty sure you’ll be glad you did. The cover alone is worth the price of admission.
