The Silent Years: Maiden for Preorder

In what used to be the suburbs of Chicago, a community lives and breathes despite the Silents in the wilds beyond. It’s a bit of a straightjacket for fifteen year old Becky, facing marriage to one of the available men and bearing children who may or may not be sane. Until the unthinkable happens – the zombie-like Silents begin to recover their reason. The stage is set for a conflict between survivors and recovered, and between old ways and new.

You’re Not Alone

Want to read a good mix of science fiction stories?

Damien Broderick was the Cosmos (Aus) fiction editor for five years and he’s put together a collection of thirty of his favorite stories from both the print and online publications during his tenure.

His choices include stories by Jay Lake, Joe Haldeman, Mary Robinette Kowak, Cat Sparks and yours truly.

The story in this volume is set in the same world as Transpecial, but considerably later in the timeline.

It’s available for purchase here:

(I realize it’s been out a while. The internet has apparently been eating my emails again and I didn’t realize it was available until my contributors’ copy arrived).

A bit of a redesign

I’m going to be doing a bit of work on this website. The main page won’t change, but some links might show up broken occasionally for a bit.

“Saturday Night At The Wonderland Club” sold.

Penumbra e-zine has purchased my story “Saturday Night At The Wonderland Club” for their “Lewis Carroll” themed issue.

It’s one of the most challenging stories I’ve ever written – trying to get the right balance of surreality and social comment was tough, but enjoyable.
