1. Aqua Vitae from WolfSinger Publications

    Jenes Inarya wants to experience everything, and quite frankly, she doesn't think she can live life to the fullest in the time she's been allotted. A search through lore and legend from the Eight Immortals of Chinese myth to the Garden of Eden finally leads her to what she seeks--across the galaxy, to the planet of Arak. By eating food prepared from Arak's immortal plants, Jenes can alter her metabolism and gain eternal life. In her case, it’s a cup of palm wine. A real aqua vitae. But the...
  2. Fantastique Unfettered

    My fantasy story "Every Mother's Child" appears in Fantastique Unfettered's second issue. “So what do you think?” I asked when I had finished. “If you’re right, it’s no wonder people don’t last long down here. Every mother’s child has to show how they feel sometimes—and Astet’s Mercy, in a place like this, I imagine you must feel a lot.” Some people, facing death, do get emotional. But not most swordsellers. I was surprised at Rathin. “Not me.” I turned on my side. “But then, I’m no...

  5. All About Eve anthology

    My short story "How the Woman Brought Death" will be one of the 17 stories in the new anthology All About Eve from Wolfsinger Publications. In this retelling, the sin that resulted in the first woman (and man) being cast from the Garden was not giving in to temptation, but resisting it--and fighting back. The woman quickly realizes that nothing good can come out of violence, but can she convince the rest of the rapidly growing human family of the truth?

  9. Champagne Shivers

    "So Cold My Blood Freezes," to Champagne Shivers (Feb 2010). “Tom’s late,” Marinne said, staring out the snow-dusted window of the cabin. “Town’s not that far away. He should’ve been back by sunset.” “The storm must have caught him,” her mother cackled. She gave the floor before her rocker a good stomp, sending her chair creaking back and forth beside the stove. “It blew over hours ago.” “It must have really caught him.” As my sister says, 'the important thing is keeping...

    January 2009 is fast becoming one of the best months in my career. :D Print/.PDF-- "Mother" to M-BRANE SF (Issue #4, May 2009). My summary for this one is: The AI of a refugee ship carrying only children is very...mothering. Chris Fletcher, M-BRANE's editor, has more to say: I dig stories about new and different kinds of families, and this next one is certainly one of those. The bizarre and rather creepy circumstances of these characters are depicted with great sensitivity and...
