    "Accelerated Justice" published

    Discussion in 'Success Stories' started by TWErvin2, Jul 21, 2011.

    Writing Forum Folks,

    My short story "Accelerated Justice" was published by Strange, Weird and Wonderful Magazine.

    If you have an interest in reading it, here's a link (It's the featured story): "Accelerated Justice" in Strange, Weird and Wonderful Magazine, Summer 2011 Issue

    I was also interviewed by the editor of SW&W: Interview at Strange, Weird and Wonderful Magazine
    Among the things I talk about is the difference between writing short stories and novel.

    Here's the kind words the editor had to say (the past paragraph hints what the story is about):

    "Terry W. Ervin II is the kind of writer we like to bring to our readers; his career is on the way up and he has real talent. He made a promise to himself back in his college days to write a novel, but lucky for us, he also has written a short story or two.

    His career and writing style has been heavily influenced by the likes of Steven Brust, Stephen R. Donaldson, Roger Zelazny, and others. His writing is gritty, and absorbing, and his characters breath with the life of a writer doing what he loves.

    His Featured Story "Accelerated Justice" is a futuristic piece with a protagonist you will find easy to care about in a world where justice is served at the point of a needle."

    Thanks, Steerpike.

    It took a while for this one to find a home. It actually was accepted by another market (one that had been around for almost a decade) but that one closed its doors before the story made it to print, and thus was released.

    That was the third time such has happened to one of my stories. Luckily all subsequently found a home.
