My (fun!) outer space robot-missed-connections story, “Missed Connections of the Cosmic Aluminum-Alloyed Kind,” is now published in Outlook Springs, available for purchase.
I really enjoyed how kooky this one was for me to write.
I have a few poems reprinted in Shoreline of Infinity’s Multiverse – an international anthology of science fiction poetry, now available for pre-order!
My parkouring, abandoned-zone-discovering** novelette, “Vault,” in the June issue of Clarkesworld is recommended by Karen Burnham at Locus Magazine!
According to the review, Karen Burnham is picking up the reins where Gardner Dozois left off, highlighting voices and bringing some attention to SFF short stories! Yay!
**Apologies—lots of words cobbled together there—this is probably me trying to approximate Japanese (wherein a whole clause can serve as an adjective). I’m writing this early in the morning and my mind is probably still switching from dreamspace to wakespace.
(Also, keyboards should have an “—” (em-dash) key. My waking mind is also realizing that the term “em-dash” doesn’t even have the — in it, but rather has the regular dash, which is not really ironic (?), per se, but kind of interesting.)
“The Weeping Bolo,” a drastic reimagining of the Bikol (Philippine) epic, Ibalong (featuring a fearsome female fighter), is now published and available to read in the Battling in All Her Finery anthology—on sale now!
