Poetry sale to Strange Horizons + Halloween pix (before Thanksgiving even)

Yesterday I learned from Mark Rudolph that Strange Horizons has accepted my poem "The Invisible Woman Runs for President." Yay! Apparently my "strategy" of not writing much has been working, as the couple of poems I have written since editing Sporty Spec have found homes with the top markets on my list.
This will be my third poetry appearance at SH. The prior two were Bosch in Hollywood and The Glass Blower.

In "real world" news, here are a few pix from Halloween 2008. For the third year in a row, Bob and I attended the Dream Halloween LA benefit for Children Affected by AIDS, held annually the Saturday before Halloween. We missed a lot of the festivities, because I'd had to pull myself up out of my sickbed to go, but we managed a quick run through, and I was happy we got to see some of the party.

This is a photo of what it looked like when we entered the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, home to the event:
