I’m thrilled that my story, “Look, Don’t Touch,” was a small contributor to this success. Congratulations to all the winners!
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.
Lots of basil.
I’m rather pleased that my first mainstream short story is about my favorite…er,…food!
You can pick up a copy of “Tomato Slices” 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!
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 appears in Futuristica, a new anthology series. So what is “Futuristica”?:
•Stories that are women positive, sex positive, and science positive
•Fiction that explores potential future scenarios, scientific fantasy, or emerging technology
•Suitable for an audience with a wide range of ages and backgrounds
•Prominent multicultural thematics
•Plot lines that emphasize character development
•Earth and Near Earth settings
In “End of My Rope”, a wannabe spaceship captain deals with aliens, escaped live cargo, and her own insecurities.
