Fat Man has been released (on Amazon for now, more platforms to come!). I’m particularly proud of this one, because it looks at a bunch of stuff that is coming down the pipeline, and how it could affect our world for good and bad… without necessarily going off into speculative fantasyland or fear-mongering. It was a tough balance to maintain, and now readers get to judge whether I pulled it off.
I’m finally getting up to date on publications that I needed to post about. The last one I’m aware of is Summer of Sci-Fi and Fantasy Volume Two – which includes my story “From Days Immemorial” (this is a story I’m particularly proud of).
Purchase link here, and here’s the wonderful cover (on which I’m honored to be listed as a featured writer!):
Outside of my usual genre preoccupations (but aligned with The Detective and the Clergyman which I mentioned recently), I’m delighted to announce that The Consultations of Sherlock Holmes is available for purchase.
This is an antho of stories in which Holmes is consulted by other crime-solvers instead of being the man responsible for the mystery. In my tale, “In the Style of the Monster”, he works from home and guides the Edinburgh police.
Here’s one that just launched! Dragon Gems Summer 2023 antho, which includes my story “The Best Planned Lays” (a brand-new story which resumes the adventures of my very first fictional hero, Fred), is available for purchase.
If you’ve ever wondered about my writing process, the genres I enjoy writing in or my latest books, but HATE reading author interviews, I have good news: I was interviewed on the Discovered Wordsmiths Podcast.
So you can get all the above PLUS you can see what I sound like, what I look like, and which corner of my living room I use as the backdrop when doing this kind of thing.
It’s a stalker’s paradise!
Also good for normal, non-weird people, too, but I hope there aren’t any of those on my friends list!
My story “Strange Tractors” (one of my favorite titles, since I had to study chaos theory in college) is up at Stupefying Stories. It’s a flash piece, which means that if you’ve got a few minutes and you’re in the mood for some science fiction about working stiffs in the interplanetary future, you should check this one out!
The wonderful Steven R Southard has just published an to an interview with me (focused mainly on my writing career) on his site. It’s quite interesting and involved, and I had a ton of fun answering the questions.
I’ve included the link here. So if anyone is curious about my process or even just my writing life, this is a nice place to start.
Cool news for today is that my collection This Air is available fro Pre-order on both Amazon and Barnes and Noble. This is a collection I think a lot of you will enjoy. As the subtitle says, it mixes SF/F and crime, and I had a
wonderful time revisiting the stories to write the introductions to them.
Of course, I’ll let the readers be the judge of the stories, but I personally think some of my best are in here. If anyone buys it, I’d love to know if you agree (or not!)!
