Heart Emoji at the End of the World

Hey, all.

I recently won first place in the latest short story contest run by On The Premises Magazine with my story “Heart Emoji at the End of the World.”

It’s a bittersweet little tale about a person who doesn’t make it back to the bunker in time.

You can read it for free here.

 

Interzone 277

Very excited to announce that my short story The Sea-Maker of Darmid Bay has sold to Interzone Magazine in the UK. It will appear in Issue 277. Thanks to my editor, Andy Cox, and TTA Press.

If you like survival stories about best friends and creation gods set in a world of tropical islands and sweeping bays and big skies, then this is the tale for you.

I’m thrilled to announce that my novelette, #WitchWitch (Hashtag WhiteWitch) is now out in volume 14 of Dimension 6 Magazine at the Coeur de Lion website. It is free to download here so check it out.

Over-the-top drone warfare set on an Alaskan glacier: the water wars have begun.

Here is the table of contents thanks to awesome editor, Keith Stevenson. :
