InterGalactic Medicine Show now available to read online, for free

Posted by on Apr 21, 2020 in anthology:story, Blog, online publication | Comments Off on InterGalactic Medicine Show now available to read online, for free

InterGalactic Medicine Show was a highly-acclaimed sci-fi and fantasy publication with a 14-year run. It shut down last summer. Most of the stories were available to subscribers only… until now. The full library is now open to the public.

I tried to get into the magazine for years and finally succeeded with “The Sweetness of Bitter” in issue #35.

Catching up on June

Posted by on Jul 13, 2015 in anthology:poem, anthology:story, Blog, holy taco church, online publication | Comments Off on Catching up on June

I’m an introvert. I like my cozy cave and routine. June was filled with book release and family and travel, and I feel like I’m still picking out things from rubble. Therefore, here are publications I had going back to June (other than Clockwork Crown) and other stuff.

At the Holy Taco Church:
– my recipe for this month is Porter Beer Chicken Thighs in the Slow Cooker!

From Phoenix Comicon:
– I posed for a picture for the great group Kids Need to Read. (Of all the shirts I had to wear that day…)

In the media:
– Michele Brittany wrote up a great article on my San Diego Comic-Con “Romantic Adventure” panel for Bleeding Cool.

At SF Signal:
– I took part in a Mind Meld on great detectives stories in speculative fiction! If you love mysteries mixed with scifi and magic, check this out and add to your to-read pile.

New story:
– “Headspace” in the Cats in Space anthology; on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. This story is pure fun: about a kitten named Trouble who ends up on a very interesting ride through deep space.

Niteblade

New poetry:
“What Happened Among the Stars” in the latest Niteblade; my poem is also featured as the cover illustration!

“Leaf Dragon” in New Myths
