Altered States II: a cyberpunk anthology (Altered States cyberpunk anthologies Book 2) by [Salgado-Reyes, Jorge, Booth, Roy C.]

Grab it here!

It features my short story LIMITLESS and happens to have some of the same characters from my NaNoWriMo novel, PROJECT PROMETHEUS.

If you do grab it, remember writers thrive on reviews, and even if you don’t feel comfortable leaving one on amazon, I’d love to know what you think of the story.

My short story “Temple of Sashirak” is featured in this month’s issue of NEW REALM. It features the itinerant wanderer and magician Liam the Black against an ancient evil looking to be reborn.

And all for less than the price of a grande macchiato.

Grab it here!

Would love a review if you do get it.

Phase 2 Magazine Issue 6 by [Gomez, Matthew X., Krider, Justin, Staggs, Matthew, Turnage, B.R.]

New issue of Phase 2 is out now. Click the link to grab your copy.

Come on, where else are you going to get quality science-fiction for less than a cup of coffee?

Oh look! A story by me! And it’s not even on this site. Woo hoo!

Slightly more serious, you can check out my story “A Brief Flash in Darkness” in this issue of Phase 2, along with some other great sci-fi stories written by a group of excellent writers.

Dark Futures Annual

 

Hey, look, I’m in another book! Yes, I already mentioned this on my social media feeds, but strangely, inexplicably, I forgot to mention it here.

I wrote a story months ago for a contest. The winner would be published in Dark Future’s first Annual Anthology. You might remember Dark Futures for being the place that’s serializing my Burned Lands arc (the final segment of part two goes live end of this month, and I’m picking away at the next segment).

Anyway, you can find the anthology here! Oh, and it features a character that is going to be the central character for the final quarter of Burned Lands. (more…)

It’s all well and good that I’m being published places like Dark Futures and Reader’s Carnival, but one only pays a token and the other only pays in exposure. The truth is, I submit to Reader’s Carnival because it ties-in to Writer’s Carnival, and as a start-up e-zine, they struggle for submissions. Speaking of, if you are looking for more of my fic, some of it is posted there as well.

I have submitted pieces to paying markets in the past, but nothing has been accepted as of yet. So one of the things I’d this weekend was take a previously rejected piece and find a new market for it. To that end, I am ever grateful for ralan.com which is a great site for finding paying spec fic markets.

I have a few other pieces sitting there, collecting the proverbial dust. My plan for the week, in addition to my usual duties over at Writer’s Carnival, is to polish at least one other piece up for submission and send it out into the wild. I understand my style of fantasy is about fifty years out of date. Seriously, does anyone want sword and sorcery style fantasy any more? It seems everyone wants the big sweeping epic these days. Ahh well. Maybe it will see a Renaissance.

Exciting News!

My short story, “A Message to Deliver,” is to be included in Dark Futures 1st Annual Anthology. I’ll be joining Doug Langille and Shaun Adams as contributors (among many others), so its a small Midnight Abyss reunion of sorts.  (more…)

A Short List of Publications

Posted: February 27, 2014 in Publications

I’ve been published more at different points in my life (college I am looking at you), but never as broadly as I have been in the past two years. I’ve been included in two anthologies to date, and my work’s been featured a few other places as well.  (more…)
