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.
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.
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!!
I’ve just realized that there is no handy list of my podcasts. If you rather listen to my stories than read them, well, now you can binge-listen!:
A Twist of Fate (The Overcast)
Old People Rules (Cast of Wonders)
Hard Passage (Cast of Wonders)
Take a Good Look (Cast of Wonders)
Off-Campus Housing (part of a Meduspod episode)
Standard Deviant (part of Lightspeed’s Women Destroy SF on Audible)
Tough Crowd (Toasted Cake)
And, P.S. Another podcast will be out soon! Teaser: Dinosaurs!
It’s within our grasp! Well, an anthology about immortality is, anyway. Hey, it’s a start, people.
I’m proud to have a story in the Lazarus Risen anthology from Bundoran Press. “Generation Gap” is about eternal youth, brain uploading, and other fun stuff. Get it today!
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!
The “Second Contacts” anthology by Bundoran Press has garnered Canada’s most prestigious science fiction award, the Prix Aurora. A list of winners and nominees appears in Locus.
I’m thrilled that my story, “Look, Don’t Touch,” was a small contributor to this success. Congratulations to all the winners!
