My story “Healing Benjamin” has had its fifth incarnation. Originally in REALMS OF FANTASY, reprinted in Ellen Datlow’s TALES OF WONDER, in a Japanese collection of sf cat stories, and in LIGHTSPEED. Now it’s in SCIENCE FICTION WORLD in Chinese. Will he get nine lives? He’s a pretty persistent cat. Here’s the cover and illustration.
For all the cat lovers out there. Have a good laugh, and a good cry.

as tiny as it seems
amid the vast array of galaxies
and the cacophony of dreams

the lovers’ quickened breath, the moment in their eyes
as distant starlight finds them—
And the distant star? It dies.
Life is but a tiny thing.
The universe is vast.
The moment—it is everything,
but the moment doesn’t last.
A new story, “Penelope Waits,” is online at Apex Magazine. There is also an interview with me about the story and my work in general.
I’m delighted to announce the publication of “Once More Into the Abyss” on Tor.com, the third and final in a series of stories about Stan, who believes his parents to have been aliens. Â The previous stories are “Adult Children of Alien Beings” and “Orphan Pirates of the Spanish Main.” Â They are edited by Ellen Datlow, with the marvelous artwork of Chris Buzelli.
