Intrigue in Istanbul!

Every Day Fiction just published my near future SF tale “Basilone” set in Istanbul. Working with their word limit made me refine the story to its essentials and I’m happy with the result. Please do see if you agree with me! Here’s the link:

Well of Souls Revisited

I ended up writing a fairy tale some years back and am still not sure why. Quail Bell Magazine published it five years ago. The editors at Visitant have just put it up for everyone to view again and I thank them for it! Please do give me your thoughts on this one!

I fondly remember walks through the high Mojave with my grandfather. This poem visits those memories. I thank the editors at Visitant for sharing it. Please take a peek!

Tryst – a ghostly mountain tale

“Tryst” began as sketches for  a fairly tedious novel. After residing among ancient computer files for fifteen years or so, I got it out, trimmed away most of it and refashioned what was left into a ghostly climbing tale. It won a prize and publication. Please let me know what you think!

The older kids are amused – Photo by Ed Haskell

The Headless Horseman, Tailypo and the Yeti – favorites all – visited San Lorenzo Park last Saturday eve for the annual Ghost Story gathering. There’s nothing like a campfire to get me going! The kids, both old and young, seemed to be amused! I thank the MCCARLM folks for inviting me to participate!

Abe meets Muir in Yosemite

Third Flatiron’s new anthology focuses on the theme of longevity. Edtior Juliana Rew graciously included a story of mine among this collection of strong stories. “Abe in Yosemite” explores a major historical what if: how might Abe’s life have turned out had John Wilkes Booth failed to assassinate him? I got to spend time with Abraham Lincoln again, always a worthwhile thing to do, and I think I did some of my best writing. Here’s the Amazon link:
