    Hi, Nathan! I came across your blog when I was putting together a list of books and stories I’m looking forward to in 2011. I’ll be on some panels at MarsCon in Williamsburg, Virginia, this weekend, and I wanted my list to include “anything Nathan Ballingrud writes, anywhere, no matter what it costs.” So I did a search to see what you’re up to, and I’m thrilled to see you’ve got stories appearing in a couple of Ellen’s anthologies and that you’re putting together both a story collection and a novel (hoo-raah!). I’ve been writing a lot since my move to Manassas, Virginia, in August, 2010. Unfortunately, although I’m writing more than I ever have, my publishing is at a standstill. I’m looking for a new agent and might have one lined up. Meanwhile, I’m enjoying my writing work (all novels, although the new project might end up being a novella; haven’t finished plotting it yet) and getting lots done on my daily train commute to Washington, DC. My sons keep me really busy, too — Levi (7), Asher (6), and Judah (4). You should come up and see us all sometime. Drop me a line when you can.

    1. Andy! I’m thrilled to hear from you! I’m sorry to hear the publishing has hit a speed bump but I have every confidence you’ll get past that quickly. I would love to see you in Virginia. My own daughter is 10 now, and scary-smart. I don’t have your contact info. Email me at ballingrud @ gmail . com.

    I read your short story “The Good Husband” last night in the anthology of 2014’s Best Dark Fantasy and Horror. I was entranced and haunted. Your writing is poetic. I think that good horror should not sacrifice literary quality for shock and awe and you completely delivered. A beautiful, awful, awesome story. I look forward to finding and reading more of your work. Thank you!
