It was an incredibly up-and-down year, 2017 was. Tumultuous. Fraught. But with incredibly uplifting moments. For me, seeds that I successfully planted came to fruition. I had several short stories come out in 2017, some of them twice.
Fiction River: Superpowers
My story “The Ballad of Osmosis McGuire” made the Tangent Online Recommended Reading List for 2017–with THREE STARS.
Fiction River: Last Stand
“Death Bunnies of Toxic Island” is certainly one of the quirkiest stories I’ve ever done.
Fiction River: Pulse Pounders Adrenaline
“Redline” is the redneck muscle-car mayhem story you never knew you needed. Series Editor Kristine Kathryn Rusch called it a story that will really stick with you.
Fiction River: Visions of the Apocalypse
One of the darkest stories I’ve ever written, “Demon-touched” reveals a plague we didn’t see coming.
Here’s hoping the seeds I’m planting today bear fruit as successfully as these. Onward!
