Always pleased when Fiction International takes a story, a journal out of San Diego State Univ which has been publishing my work since 1996. This time, a “post-cyberopunk” story called “Tranquility” will appear in the issue on “real time/virtual,” which will also be in The Chronotope.
Pearl #46, an all fiction and prose issue, a nifty journal out of Long Beach, California, is now out and contains my 4500 word story, “Tards,” which is part of Mysterium and written in early 2011.
The funny thing about Pearl is when it started back in the long ago, it was a female writer only zine, and it drove Charles Bukowski batty he could not get in it (he had to be in every small press zine, especially those out of the Los Angeles area) so he sent poems in under a female pen name.
My collection of SF stories, The Chronotope and Other Speculative Fictions, offered as a pre-print edition ebook. The print edition, due this Fall from Wildside Press as a Wildside Double with a short novel, Poison from a Dead Sun, will contain 2 more stories ta this one. This ebook will go down once the print and Wildside ebook version are released.
Robinson UK’s ebook collection of five works (two novellas, three stories) published in various Mammoth Book anthologies between 1997 and 2010.
Longish crime story in ebook form, find it at Kindle and Smashwords and elsehwere.
Corporal Eugene Bell returns from Iraq where he was taken hostage for two weeks by Syrian terrorists, and finds home more confusing and dangerous than the war zone: the woman he had a one night stand with before shipping out, Erin, has a small baby girl that Eugene is convinced is his daughter; Erin is being stalked by a obsessive cop who will do anything to possess her. When Eugene confronts the cop, home becomes a slice of hell…
I discuss the zombie cannibal craze, bath salts and “The Heather Material.” In the second hour, I read my SF story, “The Dreamer.”
