Mountain Rules

Son Jeremy and I atop Pywiack in May of 1988 on an ideal day!

In May of 1987 Ed Foley, Linc Hatch and I went to the Sierras in May for some early season rock climbing. We ended up having more of an adventure than we’d planned – as sometimes happens in the mountains – when a violent snowstorm hit us mid-climb. I wrote about our “epic” in my journal and later polished it up a bit for potential publication. It looks like that will happen pretty soon! The reminiscence won a prize in the Ageless Authors competition. I absolutely make no claim to being ageless, but I’m glad they liked the story. I’ll share it with you when it’s available. Meanwhile, here’s a link to the article: https://www.einnews.com/pr_news/487742565/california-senior-writers-awarded-top-ageless-authors-prizes

Alien Dimensions #17 got a good review!

Here’s a review of Alien Dimensions # 17 just published on Amazon:

“Short but sweet. While there are only seven pieces in this anthology, some of them could easily become classics. My favorite is Tomorrow’s Children by James Armer. His story, told from a robot’s POV, covers the accelerated lifecycle of an alien life form that comes from the sea, builds civilizations, fights until only one survives, and then returns to the sea to start the entire cycle again. Very multi-layered without being preachy. I also loved Mothermind by Robert M. Walton. He doesn’t sugarcoat how war is good for business, but follows the revolution of Mothers who don’t approve of their clone offspring being sold to fight unending wars for big business. Timely and personal. An anthology with some heart and soul. Very enjoyable.”  Thomas Howard

Tag Team – A Winning Story!

Apologies! I lost track of “Tag Team” and didn’t let you all know when it was published last fall. Ever since I watched the original  “Topper” – Cary Grant, Constance Bennett and Roland Young – I’ve been enamored of humorous ghost stories and have written several such. You can read “Tag Team”, one of my better efforts, in the Bethlehem Writers Roundtable Archives. I hope it offers a few chuckles!
