Alex Schvartsman was one of my roomies at WorldCon, and one thing we have in common is that we have both been published in BuzzyMag. I have one of those proverbial warm spots in my heart for the ezine. Over the years I've had one, maybe two stories published in the first issue of a new publication, but my story "The Centurion and the Rainman" was the first story published by Buzzy when they began publishing original fiction in March 2012.
Alex has just had his latest short story published by Buzzy, "A Shard Grows in Brooklyn". Enjoy!
