(You can find out much more about me and my stories over on my About page or my all-my-stories page or my Patreon page, where I could seriously use your support! So far, my family of five struggles below the poverty line — but by supporting me at Patreon and/or buying some of my stories, you can help change that!)
Maladapt – 2017
Maladapt is a mini-collection of four short stories totalling just under 15,000 words.
These are stories about the struggle to adapt to the coming future. About coming to terms with migrating to a robotic body, to telepresence, to universal surveillance and what it means to those of us who don’t quite fit in. They’re stories about FAILURE to adapt, and the victories to be won beyond failure.
Closer Than You Think – 2016
Closer Than You Think is a journey from the near future — self-driving cars, automation, 3D printing — to the far future where, who knows? houses may own humans or climate change might force the last of humanity to take shelter deep under the ocean. No aliens, but the farther forward we go, the more alien the human beings get!
Isolation And Other Stories – 2013
Isolation is a collection of stories about being alone, of being cast out, of losing their humanity in their own eyes or others’, and what they have to do to survive. There’s organ bootlegging, flower-alien-zombies, computer-generated homelessness, and more.
Ice Age, Space Age – 2014
Ice Age, Space age is a collection of thirteen stories previously released as ebook singles, together under a single cover (many are now only available in the collection — the singles have been withdrawn. Makes the collection a bit more worth having, eh?). The stories range from the most recent ice age to farther in the future than the human race is now from the dawn of civilization — strange times, strange people; but however removed in time the people in these stories may be, their basic humanity still shines through. An ice age tribe struggles to make sense of a visitor from the sky on one extreme, and a family bucks centuries of religious dogma to visit their forbidden ancestral home on the other. A lot more happens between the two!
Hunger – 2013
Hunger is a collection of short science fiction and fantasy stories. Each of them relates to the hungers that drive humanity–for food, for love, for power, for release from drudgery, or escape from times that have become too interesting. The stories in Hunger speak to the deep drives that move you, the appetites that lurk beneath the surface, struggling to emerge into the light. A fast food worker challenges the executive suite and learns a horrifying secret, a widower discovers strange dreams locked within the tomatoes from his garden, food pleads for its life leading a woman to seek out her roots, and much more!
Visions Of Odd – 2012
A short collection of flash fiction and vignettes, ranging from the edge of fantasy to the edge of the solar system. See an Earth groaning under the weight of a hundred billion people, eat endangered species without endangering a thing, watch the survivors of the apocalypse wait, numbers dwindling, for a computer to give them permission to have children. Visions Of Odd contains 7 stories totaling about 8400 words.
