Another New Story And A Tiny Bit More

My latest story, “Playing With Reality,” has just appeared in Asimov’s October/November issue, with lots of other wonderful fiction. I personally can’t wait to dig into the issue. The writers I know in this volume are favorites, and I suspect the writers I don’t know will be new favorites. I love what editor Sheila Williams is doing with the magazine. Anyway, my story is dedicated to […]
