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 2020, I’ve decided to go back to my roots. This is the ten-year anniversary of my time at Clarion West, and twice now I’ve attempted to go back and rewrite those stories and bang them into sellable shape. This time I’m going to do it!! I mean it this time!! I will!

Fundraising Goals

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