Straight from my inbox:
Thanks for sending “Incidental Light” to Basement Stories. I really enjoyed reading your story, in particular, the relationship between the main character and the little brother. I also have to add in here that I loved your poem, “Maps,” in the latest issue of The Pedestal Magazine. Anyway, I’d like to publish “Incidental Light” in the second issue.

Thank you very much for your kind words. (And must I say that this is the first time an editor said something nice about my submitted story AND a piece I’ve published elsewhere? This made my day.)
“Incidental Light” originally appeared in the Philippines Free Press. Watch this space. :)
