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.

Stories for Chip: A Tribute to Samuel R Delany
My story, “Slipping Sideways”, has been chosen by Anne Serling, daughter of Rod Serling, for inclusion in a Twilight Zone-like anthology coming out this fall from Rod Serling Books. She calls my story “a standout”.
A nice birthday present landed in my lap this morning…
Three of my most acclaimed short stories will be put together in one publication, and will be published later this year for Kindle.
The stories are “Slipping Sideways“, “Repeat Performance” and “A Woman of Light and Steel.”
The cover is done by the fantastic and famous cover artist Richard Wagner.
I’ll update you when it is released.
Two good pieces of news fell in my lap this past week. My Story “Repeat Performance” has been reprinted in FANTASTICA, published by the Romanian Science Fiction and Fantasy Society. It’s really wonderful! Even if you can’t read Romanian, head over and take a look. Visit: FANTASTICA.
Other news is that my story “A Woman of Light and Steel,” published in Jupiter SF and a Honorable Mention for the Nova Short Story Competition, was briefly reviewed at SFREVU. They called it a “very imaginative story”. Short, but I’ll take it! Visit: SFRevu.
