“Nuclear Family” Published on Stupefying Stories
Stupefying Stories is running a series of tales about a very different colony ship called the Brahma. I’ve written a darkly humorous piece for it entitled “Nuclear Family”, which is today’s installment.

The Swords of Rasna Cover Reveal!
This is a wonderful writing week. I get to share not one, but TWO covers of books I loved to write and can’t wait to see published.The Swords of Rasna is a fantasy book set in classical times, as the Etruscan League of 12 desperately fights against the growing might of the early Roman Empire.
As you can probably tell by the cover, this isn’t your grandfather’s Roman Empire!
I will, of course, let everyone know when this one is published!

My novel Splinter has been released. Set in the same universe as Outside, this sequel stands alone and explores the themes of artificial intelligence and the future limits of humanity.
Here’s what the publisher has to say about it:
Have Humans lost their Humanity, and Can an Artificial Intelligence Save Them?
The Tau Ceti colony is a Utopia, but tension lurks below the tranquil surface. The peace of the colony is shattered when the Unity spacecraft returns from Earth bearing shocking news.
Rome Permek, computer officer on the ship, returned with a stowaway: Emily Plair, an artificial intelligence from Earth’s cyberworld. But the colony is not the quiet refuge they hoped for. Some in the colony see her as a threat and will resort to anything to have her eliminated.
The colony erupts with the questions: Is artificial intelligence truly alive? What rights do they have? What constitutes a good life?
Follow Rome and Emily as they traverse the broken paradise colony, orbital habitats, virtual environments, and distant worlds.
This book is a sequel to the author’s novel Outside.
Cool news for today is that Alternative War has been published. This one includes my story “The High Road”, which I’m quite proud of.
