If you're new to the blog, you don't know that December 27th is the anniversary of my first fiction sale, which I made 36 years ago in 1976. Feels longer ago than that, to tell you the truth. I've written a number of posts about those days, including this one, the first on the subject. And for those of you who commented on that post back in 2004, thanks for sticking around.
So, 36 years and approximately 20 million words of published fiction later, I'm still having fun. And I still like opening envelopes that have checks in them. Many thanks to those of you who help make it possible. You know who you are.
