My Sci-Fi Publications

| July 27, 2021

Although I’ve published a lot of books, there’s only one sci-fi book in the mix, and it’s the most recent one! New Moons Under Which to Sleep is a collection containing previously published sci-fi short stories, flash fiction pieces, and a couple of poems, joined by a couple of poems that were new to the collection.

New Moons Under Which to Sleep Out Today!

| July 20, 2021

Today’s the day! My first ever book of science fiction stories, New Moons Under Which to Sleep, is out! This collection is an interesting one, as I don’t typically consider myself a sci-fi author. However, every story in this collection has been previously published! So I guess maybe I’ve written a few sci-fi stories after all! […]

New Poetry and Story Out

| March 2, 2021

I’ve got a couple of new pieces that came out in February! My poem, “The Dragon’s Hoard,” appeared at Heroic Fantasy Quarterly, and features a dragon with an unusual hoard. This poem was inspired by the idea of a book wyrm as opposed to a bookworm. I also have my flash fiction piece, “Orbit 41,” […]

Review of Chilling Effect by Valerie Valdez

| March 18, 2020

I’ve just published my final review for Mad Scientist Journal, for Valerie Valdez’s Chilling Effect, which was basically everything I’ve ever wanted in a novel. It’s hilarious, a lot like Firefly, and mashes up little bits of sci-fi pop culture into a wonderfully twisty story. Though this is my final review for Mad Scientist Journal, never fear! The […]

Review of A Family Matter by Ox Aaronson

| October 23, 2019

My latest book review is up at Mad Scientist Journal, for Ox Aaronson’s A Family Matter! It’s a sci-fi heist that reminds me a lot of the Scum and Villainy game we’re currently playing. It’s also got some similarities to the Oceans Eleven series and Firefly. You can check out my review or check out the book, which is out […]
