A Work in Progress

Voting Time!

Yep, the P&E Readers Poll is open again, so it’s time to nominate and vote for your favorite artists, writers, and stories. I have two stories that are nominatable for the year if you choose to do so (hint, hint): “Transhuman” which appeared in Chimeraworld #6 (New World Disorder) and “A Nighttime Business Arrangement” which appeared in Issue 4 of Silver Blade. Both are Science Fiction/Fantasy (psst… here’s the linky-link for that category: http://www.critters.org/predpoll/shortstorysf.shtml). 😉

Speaking of Chimeraworld #6, guess what’s already been nominated for the anthology category.

Oh, and don’t forget Fear & Trembling.

You all know what to do troopers! Huzzah!

Writerly Update 10/12/09

I finally got my computer fixed and now in the process of playing Catch-up yet again. Sigh. Just when I thought I was on a roll…. 😦

Due to the possibility of the H1N1 Swine Flu vaccine killing millions of potential readers, Mike Philbin decided to release Chimeraworld #6: New World Disorder early. It’s available now.

“In the near future, the world awakens to the corporate threat of the New World Order: a leaderless resistance defeats the global elite. Stories from Alex Severin, Tina Starr, Paul Pinn, Andrew Hook, Danny O’Connor, James A. Stewart, Arley Sorg, Robert Guffey, Sheri Fresonke Harper, Justin Oldham, Thomas Henry Dylan, Mitchell Warren, C. C. Parker, Jeff Drake, Tim Lieder, Aaron Polson, Scott M. Sandridge, John Walters, Peter Diseth, Kevin James Miller, Richard Marsden, J.W. Ocker and You The People.”

I perused a couple stories when I got the PDF to proof my little tale, “Transhuman”, and I have to tell you it’s some of the most emotionally powerful stories I’ve read in a very long time. Fortunately, the PDF arrived and I was able to proof my story before my computer got whacked by a bunch of viruses.

Also, “A Nighttime Business Arrangement,” will appear in the upcoming anthology Dreams and Screams. So that makes two nice anthos this year for you to get.

And, last but certainly not least, I’m this month’s Featured Author for Issue 5 of Digital Dragon Magazine, so be sure to check out my humorous little tale, “ASSP on Europa.” 🙂

Oh, and I moved. So in addition to getting my reviews for Withersin caught up and F&T updated, I also have to notify a few people of my new address.

And sign a couple contracts.

And…

You get the picture.

Also, I had a minor role in the audio play, Night at the Ballet: Giselle. I play one of the gravediggers. 😉

“Transhuman” to Appear in Chimeraworld#6 (New World Disorder)

Yep. Just sold a short story to Mike Philbin of Chimericana Books for his annual anthology, Chimeraworld, with its 6th issue having the theme New World Disorder. Each story is about what the world may be like after the Global Elite fail in their plan to bring about their “New World Order.”

My story, “Transhuman,” takes place in the former United States after it has broken up into several independent States, as a small community of survivors find themselves facing D.C.’s next great threat: a verichipped “transhuman” supersoldier.

Chimeraworld #6: New World Disorder will be out by Christmas ’09. I’ll let you all know when the exact release date comes out, etc.
