As many of you know, tdotSpec is launching tdotSpec Magazine, a new magazine of speculative literature. The Kickstarter is currently live! We’re aiming to fund-raise enough for three issues, and hopefully more! If you get a chance, please check out the Kickstarter to see what we’re building, and spread the word on social media! Thanks a lot! We really appreciate the support!
Imps & Minions, published by tdotSpec Inc, is currently a free download on Kindle!
From the Amazon description:
Imps & Minions explores the lives of the little guys of villainry, with 34 tales dedicated to servile underlings, mooks, henchmen, pawns, scamps and rapscallions. Whether it’s Riznax, the little imp who falls in love with his master’s library of ancient tomes, or the poor troll suffering the aftermath of a fairy tale, or the machine programmed to defend her overlord with every microchip in her chassis—in Imps & Minions, they all take center stage. The stories range in tone from whimsical and lighthearted to dark and tragic, and span the genres of fantasy, science fiction, horror, and “superhero”, with a few that are harder to classify. Collectively, they provide diverse looks at the complex and multi-faceted lives of imps, minions, and villainous underdogs of all stripes. Above all, they are compelling tales that show us the trials and tribulations of a colourful cast of characters normally relegated to the background—this is Imps & Minions, and these are their stories.

“Strange Economics: Economic Speculative Fiction”, 23 SFF stories on the theme of economics, is free this week!
From the Amazon description:
What if souls were a form of currency? What if our potential could be bought and sold? What is the value of a memory?
These economic questions and more are explored through twenty-three science fiction and fantasy stories, appearing for the first time in this collection.
This anthology also includes economics discussion questions accompanying each of the stories, written by professional economist Elisabeth Perlman, and an afterword/essay exploring the relationship between speculative fiction and economics, written by guest editor Jo Lindsay Walton.

Very happy to say that my story “Dry Bones” will be in Third Flatiron Publishing’s next anthology, “Infinite Lives: Short Tales of Longevity”.
[…] an original anthology of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and humor short stories. Twenty-eight international authors explore the themes of long life, life extension, and immortality. Tales feature mythical gods and timeless lands, time travel, androids, grim reapers, technology, and more.
I will also be anthology neighbors with author Brandon Butler, a fellow member of the Toronto Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers.
Two rangers hunt down a damaged climate control drone through the frozen, post-apocalyptic tundra of Northern Canada. True North was first published in the Aurora-nominated 49th Parallels anthology by Bundoran Press (2017), and is now available as a standalone short story.
My science fiction story “Ars Poetica” is currently ranked #4 in Amazon’s 45-minute Science Fiction and Fantasy Reads! It’s a free download for the next three days. If you get a chance, please download a free copy and leave a review. I would really appreciate it! It would be awesome if the story hit #1! Thanks!
