Surprising Stories, January 2009… (appearances)

Didn’t catch my Sci-Fi love story, A Virtual Affair, the first time around…? Well, you can always read it again before it goes into retirement.  Below in the January 2009 issue of SURPRISING STORIES.  Edited by John and Eric Thiel.  This well-received story would be one of the final 30 hobbyist venues which will feature work of mine over the next twelve months.

My New Years Resolution was to retire from many a small venue, with 350 publishing credits as rocket fuel, and see where I can take these crazy horror stories and science fiction-cluttered thoughts of mine.  And while I will still be an integral part of the Small Press, I’ve decided to take a leave of absence from the hobby press to search for a little more.   As I invest over four hours per day into a new novella with “true” emotion and real, identifiable characters, make up marketing materials and get ready for the premiere of my first short story collection, and outline fresh ideas for a hopefully pro-paying anthology, I really can’t wait to see what this year off from shorter work brings.  In the meantime, please, enjoy what the publication above has to offer.

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…

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.
