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 chosen by editor Eric Fomley—to say nothing of the stories within. It makes for a very slick package I’m pleased to join.

“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 just say that I intentionally held off on posting until it was almost Halloween, rather than because I have dropped a number of balls over the past few weeks.

“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 with food—let that serve as a content warning and promise that the third story will deal with different themes. “Family Dinner” was inspired by a different publication’s flash contest; the prompt was Dorothea Tanning’s Portrait de famille.
