Reality isn’t all just in your head

the-scent-of-hay-picture-with-publication

I don’t write much magical realism. Hard SF is more my style. But this little story wandered into my head one day and left rather large footprints.

It’s about self-actualization and overcoming one’s past. With citrus notes.

“The Scent of Hay and Oranges” is now up at Slink Chunk Press.

Flights of Fancy

smoke-1188610

Everyone has one ghost story in them, and this humorous one turns out to be mine. It takes place in a busy airport and is a monologue from an “average joe” type of guy. Why? Because TSA agents are people too.🙂

“Half-Baked” is now up at Theme of Absence.

What if you could soar like an eagle?

bald-eagle-2-1400101

A while ago, there was a youtube video making the social media rounds. It was taken by strapping a tiny camera to an eagle’s head as it flew over a river valley. A real bird’s eye view!

Recent advances in “mind melding”, such as this article in Nature were also very intriguing.

I knew I had to write a story combining both concepts.

“Limit of the Sky” in this month’s Perihelion SF was the result.

Hop on, take a ride!!

Say, What Now?

Miscommunication is a continual thematic element in my writing and my latest story, “Ground Truthing”, is no exception.

This environmentally-flavored story appears in Helios Quarterly’s inaugural issue where, not coincidentally, the entire table of contents is in the theme of Miscommunication. You can get Issue #1 here or subscribe to a year’s worth here. Enjoy!
