Richard Wagner is a fine artist and his work has graced the pages and covers of many publications, including Interzone magazine. His fantastic work can also be seen on the covers of books I have edited for Immersion Press. You can go see his work and purchase what you like at the following sites.

Happy to say that my story “Song for the Asking” has received an Honorable Mention in The Year’s Best Science Fiction: Thirty-Third Annual Collection, edited by Gardner Dozois. You can purchase a copy of the book by clicking on the title above. Lots of great stories in these collections.
Works in Progress: I am at the halfway point on a novella, and I have two short stories in the works. I also have the notes and framework for two more novellas. I hope this becomes a very prolific year.
Prominent genre review site SF Crowsnest has published a glorious review of the anthology The World and the Stars. The review praises the editor, Chris Butler (who did a smashing job, by the way), and calls out some highlights of the book.
The reviewer calls my story, “The Madness of Pursuit, the Desire of Lonely Hearts“, as a “fabulous adventure”. He goes on to say that “Creating a situation where…technology still allows for an old-fashioned maritime adventure is quite a skill and this story pulls it off nicely.” Well, thank you, Mr Jones! I have the Montpelier Writers Group to thank for helping me shape this into a better story.
A lot of great stories are in this book. Buy it now! Ask for at your local bookstore or get it at Amazon. There is something in it for everyone. You won’t be disappointed.

A nice birthday present landed in my lap this morning…

A few months ago I entered the Nova Short Story competition, run by the sffsa. Nova is the magazine element of the Science Fiction and Fantasy South Africa group. The section of the competition I entered was judged by Arthur C. Clarke winner Lauren Beukes.
Though I did not win a place, I made the final cut and earned a spot on the Highly Recommended list.
