Year End Eligibility 2018

As 2018 comes to a close, writers and readers in the science fiction/fantasy world start looking back on what was published over the year. In terms of writing, 2018 has been a good year for me. I was extremely fortunate to have two stories come out in Uncanny and a story in the final issue of Mythic Delirium.

And Yet– Uncanny Magazine, March 2018 (4,600 words)

Heavy Lifting – Disabled People Destroy Science Fiction! (Uncanny), September 2018 (5,000 words)

Graffiti Guardians – Mythic Delirium, April 2018 (1,800 words) 

“Right now, there’s a silent monster roaming the city, and though Adwin has never seen it and doesn’t know exactly what it is, he can’t pretend not to see the damage. The blocks full of empty houses and empty people. Like a parasite has gorged on their insides but kept the façade intact. And lately, that emptiness has been spreading.”

That’s what I got. What have you read this year that you’ve enjoyed? 

New Story: “Graffiti Guardians” in Mythic Delirium

I’m very pleased say that “Graffiti Guardians” is now available to read in Mythic Delirium’s 20th anniversary edition!

I wrote this story a few years ago when I was feeling hopeless about writing and wondering if it was worth all the time and energy I was pouring into it. This story was a reminder to myself that art is important, unexpected, and unpredictable. And I hope that if you’re facing similar struggles now, it will encourage you of that too.

Soundtrack: I wrote this story to Sharon Van Etten’s “Serpents” on loop.

Thanks for reading!
