Picket Duty

This is the cover of Alien Dimensions # 22

My grandfather had some fascinating friends. He and my grandmother lived on the high desert west of Victorville back when few lived east of the San Gabriels. One of those friends was a retired WWII Army vet who would periodically grab his Thompson sub-machinegun from above his front door, leap outside in his drawers and shoot at the moon. You’ll find him (or at least a far milder version of him) in “Picket Duty”, included in Alien Dimensions #22 by editor Neil Hogan. https://www.amazon.com/Alien-Dimensions-22-Fiction-Anthology-ebook/dp/B09RPDC53L/ref=sr_1_7?crid=3QU4J1K3HJH0X&keywords=alien+dimensions&qid=1645540486&s=digital-text&sprefix=Alien+Dimensions%2Cdigital-text%2C359&sr=1-7

Have a look at “Sparkle”!

Editor Neil Hogan just sent a note informing me that Alien Dimensions # 19 is officially published. I think it’s a strong issue and I’m most pleased that he included my “Sparkle”. The story’s two main characters are veterans of an earlier story, “Kill the Coffee Boilers”, published in the Third Flatiron’s 2016 anthology “Hyper-powers”. I had fun with them and decided to give them another ride in “Sparkle”. Please let me know if you enjoy them too! Here’s the Amazon link:

Alien Dimensions #19 is coming soon!

Editor Neil Hogan included a story of mine in this issue. Ever wonder what an alien corgi might look like?  If you wish to find out, read my “Sparkle”. I’ll let you know when #19 is available.

Alien Dimensions # 17

Editor Neil Hogan included a story of mine in his Alien Dimensions #17. The anthology was just published and I think it’s a strong one. “Mothermind” is my contribution. Will the future’s cloned, genetically enhanced soldiers need a mother’s love? Absolutely! Here’s the link:

Starbuck Billy Rides Again!

I’m most pleased to announce that editor Neil Hogan included my “Starbuck Billy” in Issue 16 of Alien Dimensions. Previously published in Allegory e-zine, I was disappointed when it disappeared from the internet some years back.   It’s now available in both print and electronic formats. I had a lot of fun writing it and I hope you’ll enjoy the deep space ride! Here are some helpful links:
