Things from Outer Space

Close this window

I've got a new story in Things from Outer Space, edited by Hank Davis! Get your copy today.
"As It Lays" by Yours-Truly is situated between stories by H.P. Lovecraft and Robert Silverberg. Also featured: Stories by David Drake, John W. Campbell, Sarah A. Hoyt, Clifford D. Simak, and more.
It's a bit surreal to be in such great company, with so many of my writing heroes--but hey, I'll take it! Big thanks to Hank for having me.

"The Man from the Future in Rosebud #61

My short story "The Man from the Future" is in the newest issue of Rosebud Magazine (issue 61).

It's a thrill to find my work in the pages of Rosebud, The Biggest Little Literary Magazine in the World. The magazine was a favorite of Ray Bradbury's and, in my book you can't get a much better endorsement than that.

Call for Submissions for Year's Best, Vol. 2


I'm busy reading away for the next installment of The Year's Best Military and Adventure SF (we changed the title, in case you were wondering), and while I love to discover great stories all by my lonesome, I also love to hear from authors. So, if you've got a story that you think would fit the anthology, please send it my way.

Details on what I'm looking for and how you can get in touch can be found here, or just click on the "YEAR'S BEST" tab above.
