Time for The House Beyond ***Your*** Sky!

After a brief period of exclusivity, the amazing editors of Strange Horizons have graciously allowed me to add a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike License to my story "The House Beyond Your Sky". (This story, I've mentioned before, has been picked up for the Doziois, Strahan, and Horton best-of-the-year anthologies, with very little bribery to my great astonishment).

This story is under a license that allows you to remix it. Now here is my plea: remix it! No one has done anything with "Start the Clock" yet, to my great disappointment. And I had such hopes!

Now, I'm not asking for full-fledged fan fiction here! But surely you could put some quote from the story on a t-shirt, or briefly and satirically allude the story in a webcomic, or something! Or a dramatic reading on YouTube? Coasters? Interpretive dance? A pr0n version? Come on, people!

It's a noncommercial creative commons license, but hey, if you want to write a prequel and sell it (and let's face it, with this story, pretty much any story you write would count as a prequel!), or whatever, I will almost certainly say "go with my blessing, my child", unless, you know, it's a film and your name is Spielberg, or something.

(...of course, just reading it is fine too.) :-)

About the only thing I could imagine doing with this is a translation into German, but I'm afraid that wouldn't count as a remix?

That would definitely count as a remix.

We should totally do an interpretive dance workshop with one of these stories at Wiscon. That could be *so fun*.

Well, ok, *I* think it could be fun :-)

I would love that.
