Moving my Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine Collection

I recently picked up my collection of Fantasy & Science Fiction magazines. I was visiting my parents in Oregon, and for once I was both checking a bag and had some extra room inside it. Side note: my parents gave me an EXCELLENT Christmas gift—a “disposable” piece of luggage they got at a yard sale …

Publication: “Gray All Over” in “101 Words” (hehe, 101 words long, of course)

This morning “101 Words” published my piece of flash fiction “Gray All Over,” which you can read by clicking here. Normally I write this blog publication announcement on the topic of how whatever I’ve written came into being—whatever inspired it, some humorous associated anecdote, etc. I don’t really have much to say here though. “Gray …

“Mae Jemison Cheeks” published in “Schlock Magazine” (2,361 words)

This week I got a real, full-length short story published. It is called “Mae Jemison Cheeks” and you can read it here, in “Schlock Magazine.” I’m also really proud of it—and not just because “Mae Jemison Cheeks” represents a bit of a branching out for me. When I first started writing fiction all I wrote …

Publication: “Creatures of Habit” in “101 Words”

Last month “101 Words” published my piece of flash fiction “Creatures of Habit,” which you can read by clicking here. If you had to make a guess regarding the conceit behind “101 Words,” I bet you would get it right! Everything submitted to the website has to be exacting 101 words long, and their submission …

Publication: “Creativity School” in “Cleaver Magazine”

Earlier this month “Cleaver Magazine” published “Creativity School,” a piece of flash fiction that I wrote. You can read it by clicking on the link here. I’m not quite sure where the story came from, except that I woke one morning thinking it would be funny if a real-life student was transported into a Dr. …

Publication: “The Dentist’s Maxim” in Eunoia Review”

A couple days ago “Eunoia Review” published my flash fiction piece “The Dentist’s Maxim,” which you can read here. I wrote it about four months ago, after a trip to the dentist—not surprising, right? At about 200 words it should only take a minute to read, and hopefully you’ll find it funny. Also, “Eunoia Review” …

Publication: “Everyone’s Favorite Couple” in “Foliate Oak Literary Magazine”

Today “Foliate Oak Literary Magazine” published my short story “Everyone’s Favorite Couple,” which you can read by clicking here. The last few pieces of fiction I’ve gotten published were very short—“drabbles” (writing under 100 words). At 640 words this new piece is a developed story, with a clear narrative, some decent characters, and humor (hopefully) …

Publication: 100 Word “Detective” Piece in “Eunoia Review”

Today "Eunoia Review" published my very short story “The Detective." You can read it here. Like the last time I got something published, calling this a story is probably a stretch—it’s under 100 words. Which means you should check it out—short and sweet! And hopefully you’ll find it funny. This “story” was also inspired by …
