OG’s Speculative Fiction, Mid-Late 2010… (3rd Acceptance!)

A couple of weeks ago I grabbed my third acceptance to the long running speculative fiction/science fiction magazine on the Web — available as a free PDF Download to read and eventually purchase on LULU as a magazine for cons — The Opinion Guy (aka OG’s Speculative Fiction).  This would be my second acceptance in one year to them, and they’ve featured some very talented and familiar names in the science fiction arena.  Both short stories and poetry.  Matter of fact, this third credit comes right after my 2nd, and bolstered me up to the 400 credit mark.  Editor is Seth Crossman, and he also provides an Internet site full of informative articles.

Atomjack Magazine, Weekly E-Zine 2009… (3rd appearance)

There are some good science fiction webzines out there.  Then there are some fine ones.  ATOMJACK is by far one of the better ones, and it’s proven rightly so with their material and lineups over the past four years.  This would be my 3rd appearance with them.  Published by Susurrus Press, Atomjack is edited by Adicus Ray Garton.

And for you Prolific “yet-to-bes” out there, take a look at this picture below.  Some of you may recognize it from a particular handbook that comes out once per year…
Look Mom, I'm Famous!

Look Mom, I'm Famous!

It’s a little blurry, but do you recognize the name in the picture?  Yay! To think I gave up career opportunities in art, pharmacy, neuroscience, and the science of publishing for this.  It’s gotta be worth at least a Big Mac.  Still, check out Atomjack.  They’ve got the goods.

The Fifth Di, March 2009… (appearances)

You can now find a heavily researched, post-apocalyptic tale about plagues, the death of the human race, and an alien species trying to save what’s left of mankind in… The current issue of THE FIFTH DI.  March 2009, to be exact.  The narrative is first-person, and comes from the perspective of an extraterrestrial doctor/coroner.  The Andromeda Strain was very much an inspiration here, but I wanted to change it up a bit and make my story otherworldly.  If you like 28 Days Later, you might also like this tale.  The Fifth Di is edited by J. Alan Erwine, and published by Sam’s Dot Publishing.  They’ve been around for years, and I’ve appeared there on up to almost 20 other occasions.

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.
