The original publisher of my story “The Stars Named for Lovers” went out of business, but a new publisher has acquired the rights to publish my story and others from their anthologies in a new anthology which is expected to be out later this year. More information to follow soon.
I have a new story out this month in a carnival themed anthology called The Starship Logs Volume 3: Nabu Carnevale. The story is called “The Stars Named for Lovers” and it’s sort of a sci-fi murder mystery about aliens and circuses. It’s available as an ebook or paperback on Amazon.
I have another new story out this month. It’s called “About a Man and a Robot”– which, as you probably guessed, is about a man and a robot. It’s available for free on the online magazine Aurora Wolf, aurorawolf.com. I hope you like it.
A story of mine published in 2019 made the popular Tangent Online recommended reading list: “Behind the Purple Haze”, published in Third Flatiron’s Hidden Histories anthology. Pretty cool.

One thing I’m doing during the corona virus lockdown is writing. I just had two very short stories published online this month. One is a bittersweet, far future tale about memory called “His Turn to Remember” published in Mythaxis and the other is a humorous fantasy called “The Shelf Life of an Elf” published in Kraxon Magazine.
Also I am officially fully retired as of Feb. 1, 2020. More time to write? Hopefully. However, my time still tends to get filled up.
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.
