Rod Serling Books and Me

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”.

Coming Soon – Three Stories in One e-Book

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.

Romanian Translation and New Review

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.

Story in Jupiter Magazine

February sees the publication of my story “A Woman of Light and Steel” in Jupiter magazine.

Jupiter, edited by Ian Redman, has grown steadily as a publication, earning strong reviews from SF Revue and other places. Jupiter has published Lavie Tidhar, Eric Brown, John Davies, Jon Wallace, Patrick Mohan and many more. It’s a good little magazine, and I recommend a subscription.

To read a review of previous issues go to SF Revue.
