The Ogre’s Secret! Bogerd Climbs!

My very first Bogerd story – The Ogre’s Secret – found a home in Broadswords and Blasters, issue 6. Friend and raconteur Ed McKean gave me an idea for this one long ago. John Miller’s viking units made me look at it again and get it up to speed.  It’s a romp and nothing more. I hope you’ll enjoy it!

“Avarice” is almost here!

I’m alone again . . .

My climbing story “Fallen Angel” is included in the latest anthology of the Seven Deadly Sins series. Avarice will come out on April 3rd, but its cover is here already. I thought I’d share it with you all.

Avarice!

I thought I’d give you a heads up. I’ve made a modest contribution to what promises to be a great anthology. Avarice is the latest volume in The Seven Deadly Sins, a YA Anthology and will be available early in April. My story “Fallen Angel” is tucked into the mix of compelling stories. I’ll update you as publication approaches.

“Moroni” is published in SciFan

I tussled with this story (from 3,000 words down to 900 and back again!) before I got it right, so that’s probably why it’s one of my favorites. Also, I got to write about the Palisades! I got the idea from a long ago climbing trip during which partner Wayne Thompson took a brief dive into one of the North Pal glacier’s crevices.  Pick it up on Amazon:  https://www.amazon.com/SciFanTM-Magazine-May-2017-Editorial-ebook/dp/B071R56XS4/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&qid=1493212003&sr=8-6&keywords=scifan+magazine&linkCode=sl1&tag=blooandshad03-20&linkId=c0876a807379eaf2304f033db38540a7

Climbers’ Light

Son Jon made a notable journey through New Zealand a few years back. He went far and high and by himself to take many wonderful photos. I paired one with a mountain poem of mine and the Ekphrastic Review just published both. Do take a look.

A Crow Fell

Tanka4-cover-front

Friend and Colleague John Miller recruited me to contribute to his teaching unit on Medieval Japan a couple of years ago. One of the tanka I wrote as an example for the students was included in the Tanka Journal # 3. Another was just published in Tanka Journal #4. A print edition is available from Prolific Press. Here’s a link to the online journal:

Yosemite High Camp

Mike Russell and I have managed to spend some interesting nights out over the past forty years – under the stars if we were lucky. Our latest nocturnal duel with frisky mountain weather occurred last October in the Sierra high country. I crafted my loose impressions into a poem and The Ekphrastic Review published it.
