Hi. I’m Johann and I´m a Lucky Writer

You can now finally hear something I’ve been wanting to brag about for weeks:

A story of mine will be reprinted in the Apex Book of World SF 4.

apex-world-sf-volume-4

Being in a reprint anthology was a reach-for-the-stars kind of goal for me, something I thought would be years away in my career as a writer. I’m honored, flabbergasted, excited, and, most of all, inspired to keep writing. Because above all else, this tells me that I have what it takes.

Thanks Laive Tidhar and Mahvesh Murad, for including me.

The cover and table of contents was revealed on Tor.com today (also… Tor.com! How cool is that?) so I guess I’m free to do that here as well.
