What’s this? Literary fiction on Gustavo’s page? What’s the world coming to?
Actually, I’m quite happy with what the world is coming to because the wonderful folks at Creators Publishing have sent me the cover of my next literary book, Safe and Sorry. This is a kind of indirect follow-up to 2019’s Love and Death in that it also tells the intertwined stories of several characters who have little idea of how their life affects the others.
I love this cover. To my mind, it’s reminiscent of the covers for the literary works of the 1920s and 30s. You know, Hemingway and Fitzgerald and all those guys. I happen to believe that literary fiction reached a pinnacle in that era, so giving homage to it with this cover is something I approve of wholeheartedly.
Whether the stories within are worthy of the aspirational imagery will be up to readers to decide… but in the meantime, I’ll enjoy this look.
Alien Dimensions #20-21 has been released. This one contains my story “Stone Cold” which is a bit of a weird one, even among my tales.
I incorrectly stated that you needed a subscription to read “Autobiography, Carved in Stone” online in Land Beyond the Wold. Actually, you can read it for free in the link here (and if you do, I’d love to know what you think, good or bad!).
Volume 16 of Write Ahead The Future Looms has been released. The better news? My story “The Pisco Sour War” is the free-to-read sample story. So if you’re interested, have a look!
Happy to report that my story “Autobiography, Carved in Stone” has been published in Land Beyond the World. This one makes me happy because it’s a story based on mythology and the question of what happened to all the mythological beings from way back then.You need a subscription to the mag to read the tale, so I’ve added the link to their page here – if anyone reads it, let me know what you think!
