Two releases in the same week! These are just small ones but good things come in small packages! Or at least I tend to think so.
First up we have my story Contact Theory in the MLR Press anthology Hope For Pulse. I had a lot of feelings after the Orlando shooting. Contact Theory is my raw heart put to paper in the aftermath. It’s about a man who is afraid of androids dealing with his own phobia and learning to fall in love where he least expects it. I hope you pick up this anthology as the proceeds are going to help victims of the shooting who need all the help they can to get back on their feet.

The 2016 Queer Sci Fi Flash Fiction anthology, “Flight”, is here, and I have a story in it! Earthbound is a 300 word story about Ellie Sanders, the asexual, aromantic character mentioned in the opening chapter of The Forbidden Zone. I actually want to write a book about her because her life is so interesting, but for now you’ll have to live with her take on the news that she’s not going to the planet Valeria after all.
A 300-word story should be easy, right? Many of our entrants say it’s the hardest thing they’ve ever written.
Queer Sci Fi’s Annual Flash Fiction Contest challenges authors to write a complete LGBTQ speculative fiction micro-story on a specific theme. “Flight” leaves much for the authors to interpret—winged creatures, flight and space vehicles, or fleeing from dire circumstances.
Some astonishing stories were submitted—from horrific, bloodcurdling pieces to sweet, contemplative ones—and all LGBTQ speculative fiction. The stories in this anthology include AI’s and angels, winged lions and wayward aliens. Smart, snappy slice of life pieces written for entertainment or for social commentary. Join us for brief and often surprising trips into 110 speculative fiction authors’ minds.
The book us available in eBook form (4.99), and will soon be available in paperback with b/w illustrations inside (12.99) and in a special collector’s edition with color illustrations (24.99).
