    “Tethered, In Darkness” online

    My drabble “Tethered, In Darkness,” is live on the Martian website. (It’s free to read there, and also available in Issue 4 and the Year One anthology.)

  • Martian: Year One

    Martian: Year One

    Martian: Year One is an anthology collecting all the drabbles from Martian Magazine‘s first year. I’m pleased that two of my stories—“Honey and Apples” and “Tethered, In Darkness”—are included. Buying the anthology is a great way to support the magazine, so if you like very short stories (and a robust short fiction market), please consider […]

  • Available today: Martian Issue 4

    Available today: Martian Issue 4

    Not a joke! The fourth issue of Martian: A Magazine of Science Fiction Drabbles is available from Amazon. This is the first chronological appearance of my 100 word story “Tethered, In Darkness,” which will also be in the annual anthology and on the Martian website in May. I’m a big fan of the cover images […]

  • Underland Arcana: Deck One

    Underland Arcana: Deck One

    This reprint anthology was a December release, but it’s still worth crowing about. The book collects all the stories published in the first year of Underland Arcana. My contributions—the short story “Wayfinding” and the flash “Family Dinner”—are in excellent company. Tarot cards were included with the contributors’ copies, as a special treat. Mark Teppo is […]

  • “Ruminants” in Los Suelos, CA

    “Ruminants” in Los Suelos, CA

    Surface Dweller Studios just released the multimedia anthology Los Suelos, CA. My story “Ruminants” is part of the line up. It’s about a weird goat in a weirder town. I’m stoked about this project for a few reasons. My story’s a personal first: it was pitched (rather than written and then submitted) and it’s a […]

  • Release day for In Somnio

    Release day for In Somnio

    Okay, it’s been a bit of a staged release. I know some folks have already received physical copies and ebooks were available last week, but now the anthology is available for everyone in every format. The publisher, Tenebrous Press, has trade paperbacks; Godless and Amazon have ebooks. If you’re in the mood for Gothic feels, […]

  • “Wayfinding”: Underland Arcana

    “Wayfinding”: Underland Arcana

    My short story “Wayfinding” appears in Issue 4 of Underland Arcana. It’s a sort-of ghost story about cities, people, history, and memory. The story is free to read on the website, or you can click over to Amazon to buy the .mobi or paperback. Publication was actually at the beginning of the month. Let’s all […]

  • “Family Dinner”: Underland Arcana

    “Family Dinner”: Underland Arcana

    My flash story “Family Dinner” is out today in the third issue of Underland Arcana. It’s free to read online. You can also buy the issue as an ebook or paperback and support the cool stuff Mark Teppo’s doing with Underland Press. So far, my stories for Underland are 2 for 2 incorporating unhealthy relationships […]

  • “Honey and Apples”: Martian

    “Honey and Apples”: Martian

    I don’t often write drabbles, but here is one I did write about climate change, Rosh Hashanah, and resilience.

  • “Kill Switch”: Flash Fiction Podcast

    “Kill Switch”: Flash Fiction Podcast

    Check out Manawaker Studio’s Flash Fiction Podcast 0614 to listen to “Kill Switch.” I always think it’s interesting to hear a reader’s choices: pauses, emphasis, etc. In this case I particularly wanted to hear the results because CB Droege is a man, and I had originally pictured my narrator as a woman. (I didn’t specify […]
