Curious Cat Question

Given that kristin's piece in Clarkesworld magazine is now out, and we all remember dean's own story in Strange Horizons that was later published in the Datlow-Windling Year's Best of Fantasy and Horror...

... does anyone else know any local writer's piece that was published in a paying international (read: non-local) market? I seem to remember nikki also having a story published somewhere like Prime's Fantasy magazine. Can anyone jog my memory or did I just imagine this?

Interesting enough, I'm usually wary of reading stuff on/ sending submissions to e-zines, being old-fashioned as I am ("paper is good enough for me grandpappy and it's good enough for me!"). However, I've seen quite a number of these e-zines grow from strength to strength that I stand corrected on this matter-- heck, Clarkesworld magazine is having a 'best of the year' published in print format.

Just wondering how the submitting forces are doing in the international market...

Update: Thanks to kyu and charles, they reminded me that, yes, nikki will also have a story published in Fantasy magazine scheduled for Winter 2007/2008 (which is, what? December? January?). Though am wondering how this will jive with Prime's plan to move to a weekly online format by November.

Likewise, kyu also has a story coming out in the e-zine Town Drunk by November. Congrats man! (Does it fulfill my requirements? Yes, it does. kyu! Libre naman!)

i totally recommend that you submit to online publications, BC! Strange Horizons, Clarksworld, Bewildering Stories, and this new one, called Serendipity:

Competition's tough, but if you get in, that'd be awesome! :)

There's some fellow in Ideomancer whose name sounds very Filipino and escapes me at the moment. But he could be South American for all I know.

hehe that's the problem with differentiating Filipino names. You'd think it was easy to spot one.
