All Knowledge is found on LJ, I hope

This is a little bit embarrassing, but given that All Knowledge is found on-line--albeit not, apparently, with my google-fu--I'm asking for help.

Some time ago (I'm sorry - I think it was late '90s or early 00s) I wrote an SF story called "Fat Girl". I wrote it for an entirely .pdf ezine, whose name, I'm really sorry to say, now escapes me -- it was called either Oceans of Night or Oceans of Light or even Oceans of Space - i.e. Oceans was in the title.

(Do not try to google on Fat Girl, Fat Girl Michelle Sagara, Fat Girl ezine Sagara.)

I would like to reprint the story, but I'd also like to credit the original editor who bought it - and, well.

No, I don't have a copy of the ezine. Yes, it was emailed to me. I think I lost it in the great head-crash. I have the submission file, but not the finished work.

So…does anyone remember an entirely SF ezine that might fit this description, and possibly a person to go with it?

No idea personally, but did you ask on an open thread at Making Light?

It's not Oceans of the Mind?

That was the first one I thought of. I think I even have the editor's name if you need it. Possibly even an e-mail address, though I'm not as sure on that one. Aha. Richard Freeborn was the editor of Oceans of the Mind. The e-mail address I have for him was associated with the now-defunct 'zine, though.

burger_eater, jimhines thank you!!!! (I know. Multiple exclamation marks are bad - but on occasion I feel they're appropriate). That is, indeed, the magazine.

2001-2006. I *think* the date of story was some time in 2004, but now that I have that information, I can try google again.

Their archives don't seem to list you, which is why I put a question mark at the end of that. Good luck!

The two things I know are: a) he paid me, b) he emailed me a .pdf, and c) Gardner listed it in his honorable mentions in the YBSF for that year. I was concerned that the title might not fly, although it works with the story. Otoh, like all my SF, it's not the most upbeat of my works, and you're right - I'm not there. Hmmm.

And the funny thing is that I found the YBSF, Gardner does list the story by name in the honorable mentions, and lists it as part of Oceans of the Mind volume VI, which would make sense, as that's the Canadian issue. But... it's not in the archives, and it's not on the LOCUS list of contents, either. Oh well :). The Gardner thing gives me a date, you've given me a publication, and that's pretty much what I wanted.

Thank you!
