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.

The Kindle ebook edition of The Chronos Chronicles is out now: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D9VY2RB
Slow start this year, but now I have two new stories out this month.
“Defect”, a fun story about a robot who thinks there’s something wrong with him, is online at Aurora Wolf: https://aurorawolf.com/2018/05/defect/.
“Timeless in Chronoville,” a story about growing up in a place where time travel is commonplace, is out in the new time travel anthology, The Chronos Chronicles. Available at Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/dp/1910910171/), it’s out in paperback now and in a Kindle version soon.
I’m part of a group of authors from around the world participating in an anthology of eco-fiction called 2047: Short Stories from Our Common Future — stories written to create awareness about pollution, excessive resource use, and climate change. It is available now at Amazon in both Kindle and print editions: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077T7BZ56. My story is called “Driftplastic” and it is about the state of pollution in the future.
I recently found out that I won 3rd Place in the Ligonier Valley Writers Flash Fiction Contest. The theme was “Haunted Objects” and my story was called “Pink Flamingoes.” Check out their website http://www.lvwonline.org.
I have another new story published in an anthology this time. It’s a planetary space adventure about communication that appears in Visions VII: Universe available from Amazon in Kindle or Paperback. It’s called “When the Hammerheads Sing.” (Sorry, not free to read online this time.)
I have another new story published online this month in one of my favorite online science fiction & fantasy magazines, Aurora Wolf. They specialize in stories with positive endings which I think is great. My story, “Limb From Limb,” is a story of war in the future, but it does have a positive ending.
On this day, June 1, 2017, I have two late-breaking news items.
- New story published in digital science fantasy magazine SciFan called “Ladies in Flight” about Victorian era ladies with mechanical wings who band together to track down a beast stalking the streets of London.
- Bigger news: I have started my semi-retirement today, which means I may have more time to write. Maybe. Depends what ends up filling all that free time.
And I’ve had yet another story published this year. It’s a space adventure (great illustration) in online magazine Aurora Wolf on March 1, 2017, called “Into the Soft Fields.” That’s one a month so far this year. If I can just keep up the pace…
