“Safe Places” Published in Martian Magazine (free to read)

My microfiction, “Safe Places,” is now out on Martian Magazine’s website. Here’s the link.

“Safe Places” Published in Martian Magazine Issue 5

My microfic, “Safe Places,” has been published in Martian Magazine Issue 5.

It’s dark, experimental, and emotional. Inspired is the wrong word to describe where it came from. Haunted would be more like it. The story’s set on Mars, but if you read it, I think it’ll be fairly obvious that when I wrote it, my mind was on the current events of Europe. By which I mean Ukraine.

You can buy the issue on Amazon as well as from several other retailers.

“Machine Learning” Republished in Martian Magazine

Flash Fiction Online 2021 Anthology Is Out

The Flash Fiction Online 2021 Anthology is out! It has two of my stories in it: “The Bones and Their Girl” and “Beneath Her Sweet Roots.”

The anthology spans multiple genres from literary to fantasy, science fiction, and horror. It also contains behind-the-scenes interviews from the authors.

It’s available from the Publisher.

“The Last Dream” Published in Martian Magazine

Today I have a tiny tale in Martian Magazine called “The Last Dream.”

As far as I know, it’s my last story coming out in 2021. At 100 words, it’s almost too short to describe without spoilers, but the characters are an estranged father and daughter and the genre is “feely SF.” I hope you enjoy it!

You can read the story here.

Awards Eligibility Post 2021

I had a handful of original stories published this year, but many of them very, very short. So it’s no surprise my personal favourite and best candidate this year is a flash as well:

Birding With My Human” hatched in Nature Futures in July, and I’d be thrilled if you considered it for awards & noms. Thank you!

It is eligible for Hugo, Nebula, and Locus Awards (and possibly others) in the Short Story category.

The setting in the story is based on a real location (a lake and a bird tower) and much of the story was inspired by my own birding experiences.

You can read the story here (SF, 980 words)
