For the next few weeks you can pick up a great deal - the Adventure SF Bundle includes the several novels and the anthology Launch Pad, featuring many short stories I'm glad to be a part of. My story is about teenage Sylvia Plath in space. Because Sylvia. I hope you check it out.
In the Cats of Lakewood, stray kitty Sheldon disappeared for several weeks but is back this week and snoozing on my love seat. Stray tomcat Longmire seems to have the same stomatitis (drooling, mouth inflammation) problem as Sheldon but I haven't been able to drag him to the vet yet. If you'd like to support this little rescue colony in my yard, they and I would truly appreciate it.
The end is nearer than we think. The world to come is full of bleak humor, sketchy survivors, and bittersweet nostalgia for what was lost. Indulge your sweet tooth for disaster with this collection of published stories.
