A personal fave, a bit of fantastic memoir. It’s all true except the bits that aren’t. Here’s the link.
Here’s a few photos of my dad as a lad:
Check it out:
I long to be content with life
as tiny as it seems
amid the vast array of galaxies
and the cacophony of dreams
of otherwise and other ways—
the hue and cry of how
this moment could be so much more
than a speck of here and now.
More? How could it be?—
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.
Check out the fantastic artwork for this series by Chris Buzelli. “Orphan Pirates of the Spanish Main” will be on Tor.com in May. “Once More Into the Abyss” later this year.
“Robot Story,” another Christmas story is now online. This one may well be my fave. Merry Christmas, everyone, and a Happy New Year. As the title suggests, it’s also a robot story…
I’ve been neglecting the blog lately. (Curse you Facebook!) I have lots to report. A new short story is on Tor.com, “Adult Children of Alien Beings.” A sequel, “Orphan Pirates of the Spanish Main,” will appear next summer. Â The fantastic artwork for ACAB is pitch perfect.
Even more exciting is the publication of my eighth novel, Bad Angels in October. Â It’s available for preorder on Amazon. Â I’m giddy about it frankly. Â It’s a love letter to Richmond and a whole lot of fun. Â You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll fly!
