“April in Paris” is barely a genre story, isn’t it?
It’s fantasy, time-travel fantasy. And the very same week it was accepted, “An die Musik,” which is an Orsinian tale and realistic, although set in an imaginary country, sold to a little literary magazine. You asked about sales? Well, the little magazine gave me five copies as payment. I think it was Fantastic that took “April in Paris,” and they paid me thirty dollars, which is about like three hundred now. Pretty good for a short story.
