I have a story in this most interesting anthology. I thought you all might find my conversation about it with Editor Alisha Costanzo entertaining! The book will be coming soon. Watch for its publication here!
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
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:
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:
Vienna Station won the Galaxy Prize in 2011 and was subsequently published by Rosetta Bo0ks. Rosetta recently shortened its e-pub list and most graciously gave me the files and rights. I (with Ed Haskell’s copious help!) brought the novella back to life on KDP a couple of months ago. Now, thanks to Ed and KDP, you can order an actual paperback! Here’s the link:

My SF story “Esmeralda’s interstellar Hot Tub Cafe” was published today by Aurora Wolf. Editor Michael Pennington included it in this issue and I thank him for doing so! It’s not Shakespeare, but I had a lot of fun writing it. If you liked the bar scene in Star Wars, you’ll like Esmeralda’s place.
