Two New Releases

 
Hi everyone!  Hope your holiday season was very cheery and not too cold.

The first release announcement is for Galaxy’s Edge issue 6.  It contains my quirky little story, “Imma Gonna Finish You Off,” alongside work by my WotF classmates, Tina Gower and Brian Trent.  I think it’s worth checking out the issue just for the chance to read the reprint of Kij Johnson’s “26 Monkeys, Also the Abyss.”

The second announcement is for the IGMS Big Book of SF Novelettes. Featuring stories by award-winning authors including Orson Scott Card, Wayne Wightman, Aliette de Bodard, Eric James Stone, Mary Robinette Kowal, Stephen Kotowych, Jackie oGamber, Greg Siewert, Jamie Todd Rubin, Brad Torgersen… and me. 

Check ’em out!
