Coffee is Served

I heard back from the anthology Coffee: Caffeinated Tales of the Fantastic published by UFO (Unidentified Funny Objects).  They are accepting from me a tale called “From the Shores of Tripoli” that originally appeared in 1996, the third story I ever had published.  I remember one friend read this back then and commented how much she enjoyed the “ghost story.”  This was a surprise since I hadn’t written a ghost into the story, although there is obviously ambiguity with one of the characters.  I wonder how people will read it this time round.  The reprint market is fairly limited and I am delighted for the chance to bring out a vintage Shipley story a second time.  Getting paid two times for the same piece isn’t half bad either.
