Tail Gunner Joe was sold in 1996 to Twilight Zone Magazine, which would have been my first professional sale. BUT…that publication shut down before the contract was signed.
In 2019, therefore, it first appeared in the anthology To Slip the Surly Bonds, (The Phases of Mars, Book 2), alongside some of the biggest names in Science Fiction. The whole book is outstanding, and I was very proud to be part of that project.
