Tightbeam #268, November 2013… (appearances)

My science fiction story, The Starship Hanoi, is in the current issue of Tightbeam.  Tightbeam is the official zine of the National Fantasy Fan Federation (N3F), an organization created in 1941 with a very large audience in SF fandom (it’s also a club with dues); Tightbeam has been around since 1960, and has a pretty healthy circulation at numerous SF/F conventions.  They have fiction, non-fiction, book reviews (all mostly unsolicited), and con reports between their pages.  My story is about The Vietnamese Life Cycle and what inertia will bring to an Asian colony (and culture) in the far future.  It’s a story of the burdens of technology and progress, really.  Links to free download and N3F website below (also in print).  Issue #268, edited by David Speakman.

M-BRANE SF: Issue #9, Fall 2009… (coming soon!)

Slowly catching up, slowly getting there.  My second of three Mars-related stories will appear in M-BRANE SF around the Fall.  Issue #9.  This is my 2nd appearance with them.  They’ve recently released print versions of issues #1 through #5, and No. #6 may already be out.  They are also available via PDF subscription (very affordable!), which I highly recommend checking out.  The publication features many forms of scifi, non-fiction, and analyses of the genre itself.   It has a retro-60’s feel.  Sort of like the pulps.  They’ve featured many familiar names in the SF short fiction arena. 

M-Brane SF

M-BRANE SF is not only a PDF and print publication but a regular science fiction news source, too.  One of the ideas they’re juggling around right now is a ‘Shared World’ theme, which might be of interest to genre lovers.

M-BRANE SF: Issue #2, March 2009… (Now Available!)

The second issue of M-BRANE SF has just hit the Internet with a March edition to die for.  It’s a fast-growing venue with a positive future ahead of it.  Some decent writers have already submitted to it, like Rick Novy and Cat Rambo.  I have a story in Issue #2, and not only is the magazine well-formatted and very affordable for this economy, but I believe it is available in a few formats.  I recommend trying it out.  The PDF is only $12.00 for a whole year! For twelve issues, how can you beat that price? Christopher Fletcher gives his personal summations, too, on who’s who and what’s what involving the genre.  Not just Hard Science Fiction.  Love the retro 60’s feel!

Pablo Lennis #250, September 2008… (appearances)

I’ve missed the last few months worth of fanzine entries, so I’ll start again fresh here. I have a story in the special — and rather thick, might I add — 250th Anniversary Issue of Scifi’s longest running fanzine.  PABLO LENNIS, Issue #250… 22 Years in print.  And over that 22 year period, tons of great authors and poets, prolific and new, have come and gone.  To be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s one of the last snail mails of its kind left.  It’s where my fiction first saw print back in the mid-90’s, and it’s edited by John Thiel of Indiana.  John, God Bless, and here’s to the next 250 issues…

PABLO LENNIS: Issue #250, September 2008

250th Anniversary Edition

Submissions or $2.00 per sample issue

SEND TO: PABLO LENNIS, 30 N. 19th Street, Lafayette, Indiana 47904

There’s a ton of reprinted short stories over the last two decades from some very fine and familiar authors — old-schoolers! Not to mention articles on science and religion, book and movie reviews, and SF poetry.

PABLO LENNIS #246; May 2008

Also, now up from Whispers of Wickedness, and archived at the bottom of the ‘READINGS & REVIEWS’ section, my review for one of the newest and most popular counterculture literary journals to hit the UK.  They have featured such names as Jeff VanderMeer, Rhys Hughes, and Steve Redwood.  I’ll be in their fourth issue myself, with a gay fiction piece.  Polluto also marks my first literary journal acceptance.  😉
