Rich Horton picked out my story “Diana Comet and the Lovesick Cowboy” as the best in Icarus magazine last year. Thanks to Rich! That story is about a, umm, lovesick cowboy. Who has broken up with his boyfriend in the Civil War-ish era and gets love advice from Diana. That story owes a tiny amount of dues to the old TV western “Alias Smith and Jones,” which I once adored, because my cowboy looks just like Pete Duel.
