ASF_APRILMAY2016_400x580My latest novelette, “Matilda,” just appeared in Asimov’s SF Magazine. I got inspired when I read some of the older works for Women of Futures Past, and I decided to try my hand at a sentient ship story. Sheila Williams of Asimov’s liked it enough to put it in the April/May issue. You can even read an excerpt from the story on the site.

I had fun writing this one. I hope you have as much fun when you read it.

And if you’re a big sf fan and you haven’t tried my Retrieval Artist series, then you can get The Possession of Paavo Deshin, a novella in the series, for only $1 as part of the Middlings Bundle. The bundle itself gives you 12 ebooks for $12 plus the chance to donate to a charity. Lots of good reading here!

    It’s funny, I have been reading your blog for a while and wondering where on earth these magazines you talk about being published in are sold, since I was certain that I’d never seen them anywhere, and I assumed (without doing anything to actually find out) that I’d have to subscribe, or maybe find them on that giant wall at B&N.
    And then I saw this issue for sale at the check stand at the supermarket, right next to people magazine. I probably wouldn’t have noticed it, but your name on the cover registered, and then of course it came home with me. So thanks!

  2. I love the old fashioned name for a modern story concept.
    I look forward to reading it.

    Ten books for $12, though, still a nice selection of great writers, and a bargain.
