I’ve had fiction accepted at a couple of venues.
- “Eyes or No Eyes” will appear in issue 30 of Heroic Fantasy Quarterly. Illustrated! When a knight is blinded in a jousting accident, the attendant wizard relates the unusual change of fortunes between the injured knight and a feckless prince.
- “Death Run” will appear in issue 2 of Turn to Ash: Open Lines. A woman on the run from the consequences of her ex-husband’s conspiracy theory dabblings relates her tale to a radio talk show host. (This story features the appearance, albeit in the background, of a recurring character of mine who appears in “Code Name Trine” in the Insidious Assassins anthology.)
- “Automatic Sherlock” will be published in an anthology slated for 2017, so far titled Baker Street Irregulars, with Jonathan Maberry and Michael A. Ventrella as editors. In my take on an alternate version of the Sherlock mythos, the detective is a robot built by the enterprising Dr. Watson, taking place in a near future Russia.
- “Mirrorworld”, originally picked up by Grey Matter Press for their Death’s Realm anthology, will be reprinted in Momento Mori by Digital Fiction Publishing.
It’s been a busy year creatively speaking, and there is more to come before its close.
