What I Write

What I Write

I write science fiction and fantasy, with a lean towards fantasy, especially contemporary fantasy. Lately I’ve been writing poetry, but attempting to write “science fiction poetry,” which I think is much harder than it sounds. (What makes a poem a “science fiction poem”?)  But oh, do I wish I could start on that alternate history novel set in the Bronze Age! With Sodom! And Gomorrah! And Lot!!


“Sparking the Matter” – Asimov’s
“The Smile of La Flaca” – The People’s Apocalypse
“My Way is the Way of the Pony” – Bronies: For the Love of Ponies
“How Technology Threatened My Manhood” –
“Delilah of Damnus IV” – The Gloaming
“arriving at form : : 3:15 am” –

My Write-a-thon Goals

Writing Goals

For 2018, I’d like to flesh out an urban/contemporary fantasy idea I’ve had in mind for a couple of years involving incubi and succubi. It’s a lot more difficult than it sounds because it necessarily involves sex, and how do you tastefully handle that?

Fundraising Goals

I would like to raise $500 or more this year.
