Review – Middlegame by Seanan McGuire

I once wrote a story that was published in an anthology. And in that anthology is a story by Seanan McGuire. And I am very proud of that. So I’m kind of dropping names. And that the name is Seanan McGuire, and that her fame is well deserved, so I have huge respect for her … Continue reading Review – Middlegame by Seanan McGuire

Published – in Asimov’s

A short story I wrote was published in Asimov’s Magazine of Science Fiction. It’s called “You’ll Live.” The idea for the story came when I was thinking about self-driving cars, and it veered off from there. I think that when we have real self-driving cars our lives will be very different. Cars will become living … Continue reading Published – in Asimov’s

Book Review – The Postman

Book Review The Postman By David Brin Note: I spoil. That said, the novel is over 30 years old, so if you haven't read it, where have you been for the last several decades? Tropes abound in post-holocaust fiction. The struggle against the fall into chaos. A man (or woman, but let's face it, usually … Continue reading Book Review – The Postman

I'm certain that I've detected … Continue reading Book Review – Rogue Protocal

The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction – and How They Won Me Over

If you read my bibliography, you'll know that I try to write fiction. I got the bug, so to speak, two years back, maybe a little more. I sold one story so far, trying to sell more. There are a bunch of professional magazines for the type of fiction I want to write, maybe 10 … Continue reading The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction – and How They Won Me Over
