Posted by on Jul 23, 2021 in anthology:story, Blog, online publication, podcast | 0 comments

Space travel is cool. Cats traveling in space is even cooler, right? My story “Headspace,” originally published years ago in the themed anthology Cats in Space, is now available in podcast form! The narrator, Steve Quinn, did a great job. Please take a listen–you can even download it to listen on the go!

Listen to “Headspace” over at The Overcast.

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.
