Yesterday, the mail came with my contributor copy of Beyond Centauri, the magazine that published my short story "Misunderstood." Very snazzy! (Issue 30 if, you know, you want to get your own. I'm telling you: snazzy. Snazz factor is high.) They also sent me a check! It is, as checks for writing stories for tiny magazines are wont to be, adorable and tiny, rather like a kitten.
