My new website and blog

I've reached the point that I now need a website for my fiction career. Welcome. Here you'll find a list of all the short stories I've sold with links to where you can find them, some freebie stories available only on this website, and a brief description of the novel I'm working on. I'm hoping some day in the not-too-distant-future that sub-page will be revised to include a link to purchase the book, but as of early 2016, I am slogging through what I hope is my last major round of revisions/critique incorporation before looking for a literary agent to help sell it.

This blog is meant to appeal to those who'd also like my stories. I expect posts to deal with science, futurism, writing, science fiction and related genres--books and media, and random silliness meant solely to entertain you. If you like what you see here, visit me on Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads, and check out my stories.

Welcome my vision of the future. Let's see what we can do to prevent it.
