My story “A Raft of Questions” is up at HyphenPunk. I love this mag, as it’s a great sport for those stories which mix subgenres. This one is Solarpunk +. Biopunk. I think you’ll enjoy it.
Contract signed, so I can now announce that my story “Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice” has sold to the Grandpa’s Deep Space Diner anthology.
I’m delighted with this one, as it’s a very quirky little tale.
Desert Base Strike is available for kindle and in paperback. Purchase link here, and I leave you with the cover–which I love–for your enjoyment!
The winners of the Opera contest that ran over on Codex have been published at Page and Spine. My story was the third-place tale, and you can read it for free at the link, here (it’s a short-short, so won’t take you much time, and it just might make you chuckle).
So, in an incredible bit of brain fade, I forgot to report a publication from a major publisher (in my defense, I was traveling, but still).I’m delighted to report that my story “Understudy Overreach” was published in issue 98 of The Grantville Gazette.
Link to the issue on the Baen store here.
I’m delighted to announce that I’m one of this year’s top 10 finalists for the Jim Baen Memorial Short Story Award. Final results will be announced later this month, so fingers crossed!
Want to see something cool? The Website for The Malakiad is here! I absolutely love the book description they came up with (you can tell it’s not mine because my attempts at that kind of thing are universally awful).
It’s been quite a week for finding reviews online. Now it’s an Italian evaluation of the Solarpunk antho. This one does say nice things about my story… but it says them in Italian!
Here’s a bit of coolness: the anthology, Sherlock Holmes: a Year of Mystery 1882, which contains my story “The Purity of the Turf” has been published. My first attempt at a Sherlock Holmes story!
Cover reveal for The Malakiad, coming soon from Dark Owl Press. This is a humorous fantasy novel in which we reveal what it was really like to be a Greek hero, and also the unfortunate truth about why the name of Kopulus, the greatest of the Greek heroes, has only reached us through indirect means…
Plus, a pink sea monster.
As I know everyone is going to want to read this one, I promise to let you know as soon as it’s available!
But first, that cover…
