Publications in Wax Poetry and Art, and “Degenerates: Voices for Peace Homelessness Edition”

I was very happy to find out that my poem “kawasaki highway” will be published in Wax Poetry and Art, and my poem “the concrete” will be published in “Degenerates: Voices for Peace Homelessness Edition”, by Weasel Press. Both of those should be coming out soon!

Publication in Polar Borealis

My creepy short story ‘The Santas’ is going to be published in Polar Borealis! And just in time for Christmas, too!

I was very happy to find a good publisher for this story, and also to find that it’ll be published in time for the season.

Without too many spoilers, the premise of the story is that “Santa Claus” is just one of many “Santas”, magical beings who are summoned by using different rituals. Cookies and milk and stockings by the fireplace summon Santa Claus. But in ‘The Santas’, we meet some of the lesser known -and far creepier- Santas.

That story is coming in issue #5 of Polar Borealis, which will be free to download!

Publication in SciFan Magazine

I was happy to hear that my story ‘The Arcadian Obelisk’ will be published in an upcoming issue of SciFan Magazine.

The story is about a spaceship crew trying to stop a mysterious object that’s gobbling up entire star systems.

(Funny thing: this story was originally accepted for publication about a year ago by another magazine, but I accidentally withdrew it from consideration when I got my editors mixed up. Lesson learned.)

I’m very happy to say that the Strange Economics anthology is over 80% funded!

Strange Economics is an anthology of speculative fiction on the theme of “economics”. If that sounds like your thing, or if you just want to support the project, please take a minute to check out the fund-raising reward tiers and see if any of them appeal to you. All of the money we raise goes to the authors involved.

If you’re a speculative fiction author, there is an open call for submissions. We pay 1.5c/word CDN for accepted stories. If you have a story that you think might fit, we’d love to see it.
