It’s contagious!

Triangulation cover

My latest story, “Cross-Contamination”, appears in Parsec Ink’s annual Triangulation anthology. This year, the theme is “beneath the surface”.

Buy it today and read about relationship undercurrents, sneaky teenagers, menopausal hot flashes, and creeping alien fungi.
And basil.
Lots of basil.

Well, sort of!

Kevin at Airship Ambassador was kind enough to interview me about my story in Clockwork Canada.
You can read Part One here and Part Two here.

Also, Quill and Quire have a terrific review of the anthology in general and my story in particular. Pick up a print copy at most magazine shops or subscribe.

And, Mike Perschon, a steampunk aficionado and an English professor, tweeted that “‘East Wind in Carrall Street’ has ‘teachable short fiction’ written all over it.”

I’m so proud to be part of this antho!

Asking the big questions…

Shoreline-Issue-4-Cover-647x1000

Science Fiction is about asking the big questions. Back in 1970, Arthur C Clarke said “One of the biggest roles of science fiction is to prepare people to accept the future without pain and to encourage a flexibility of mind. Politicians should read science fiction, not westerns and detective stories.”

My latest story, “Well Enough Alone“, at Shoreline of Infinity, tackles right-to-die issues head on. It’s got humor and lightheartedness but, please, pour yourself a stiff coffee before you read it.

The Square Kilometer Array could be built in the next few years. What might it detect? What might people hope it would detect? What if it detects something else entirely? My latest story, “I Love Lupi”, is up now at Perihelion SF.
