Here, Have Some Fiction:

“Cyberplant” is out in issue numero sixteen of Galaxy’s Edge. This one is near and dear to my heart because I wrote it after taking a bucket-list trip with my mom to Peru, where I fell in love with the country. It’s also the story I wrote for the 24hr challenge during the WotF workshopContinue reading “Here, Have Some Fiction:”

MaryLin’s Special Brand of Magic up at DSF

My story MaryLin’s Special Brand of Magic is up at Daily Science Fiction.  Below is an excerpt and a link! The magic appeared in 2019, when a rogue comet performed an impossible loop-de-loop while passing Earth. The strange astrological phenomenon was a sign, a sigil, a portent–or perhaps just a pretense. Whatever it was, theContinue reading “MaryLin’s Special Brand of Magic up at DSF”

Audio Version of “Imma Gonna Finish You Off” Up at Escapepod

In a world where  immortality is a thing, what is detective Harry Sordido to do when a homeless man is murdered and won’t freaking come back to life to tell him who the killer is?   On the examining table lounged a body.  It was an unremarkable body–rather wrinkly, with an inordinate amount of hair in all theContinue reading “Audio Version of “Imma Gonna Finish You Off” Up at Escapepod”

Comet Man up at Flash Fiction Online!

Today I’ve got a reprint out at FFO!  ‘Comet Man’ is a funny little tale about a father’s disconnect with his adult son.  And the main character rides a comet…bareback…to Jupiter. Excerpt time! I don’t care what genetic sub-group you’re from, by comet is a lousy way to travel.  And  no, I don’t mean this touristy shite where theyContinue reading “Comet Man up at Flash Fiction Online!”

The Prayer Ladder is up at QuarterReads!

This almost-flash fantasy piece was first published in Galaxy’s Edge magazine, and later appeared in the venue’s Best-Of anthology.  Here’s an excerpt: The ladder stretches up and up before me. Into the sky, past the clouds – past the sun, perhaps. I cannot see the top, but I know it ends in Heaven. Chill windsContinue reading “The Prayer Ladder is up at QuarterReads!”
