After a long dry spell with no published stories since April, 2019, I have two new short stories out in October. The first was published online by Tell-Tale Press. “The Seductive Flask of Mr. Reynolds” is an alternate history fantasy tale. https://telltalepressfantasylibrary.blogspot.com/2019/10/the-seductive-flask-of-mr-reynolds-by.html
My second story published this month is in a new magazine called Red Planet Magazine, available in digital or print formats. It’s a science fiction story called “A Million Points of Light.” https://www.redplanetmagazine.com/archive
I have another new story just published online at Aurora Wolf. It’s sort of a “monster” story that also deals with environmental issues. You can find it here: https://aurorawolf.com/2019/04/yggdrasil/.
I’ve updated some of the links on my Bibliography page. Some of my stories are no longer available because the website or online magazine went under. These are noted as “Defunct.” Also, my 3rd Place winning story, “Pink Flamingoes”, from the 2017 Ligonier Valley Writers Flash Fiction Contest has finally been placed on their website. You can find it here: https://www.lvwonline.org/copy-of-past-winners.
By the way, I’m looking into possibly publishing some of my stories that are no longer available with a new collection of stories. More about that later.
I’m excited to announce I have a new short story coming out on April 15 in an anthology of stories called Hidden Histories. The stories explore the themes of alternate history, secret history, conspiracy theory, mythology, and future history. What’s even more exciting is that my story, “Behind the Purple Haze”, was selected to be the cover story! It’s available for pre-order now on Amazon:
I’ve just had a science fiction adventure story published called “Where the Tunnels End” in an anthology called Jouth: An Anthology Vol. 1. (No, I don’t know what “jouth” means.) It’s available on Amazon here. Also a promotional blog about the anthology by one of the other authors is here.
It’s been a slow year for my second career as a writer. My first career as a part time contractor in computer automation systems has been keeping me busy lately. However, I did manage to get another story published, something a little different called “At the Center for Medical Imagining.” You can read it online here: https://aurorawolf.com/2018/10/at-the-center-for-medical-imagining/
Also I did sell another story to an anthology. I’m not sure when it’s coming out, but I’ll keep you posted.
I’ve been interviewed in a blog by Tanja Bisgaard, the editor of 2047: Short Stories From Our Common Future, which has my story “Driftplastic.” First time I’ve ever been interviewed in a blog. It was fun.
I’m proud to announce that the anthology 2047: Short Stories From Our Common Future (which has my story “Driftplastic” in it), edited by Tanja Bisgaard, has been nominated for Best Climate Solutions 2018 in the category of Education and Media.
