Here’s the TOC announcement (that’s “table of contents”, the rest of you) for this year’s SFFWorld.com anthology, YOU ARE HERE… and I AM THERE…

You Are Here

You Are Here‘s editors have gone through all the submissions and we are pleased to present the final Table of Contents.

Before I announce the final line up, we want to thank everyone who contributed a story. Though we may not have chosen your story, I was – once again – amazed at the inventiveness of fantasy and science fiction authors. Truly, you put my own efforts to shame.

With that said…here’s the final list of stories for You Are Here:

  • Walked About by Jez Patterson – a neat little piece of horror where a map leads folks to a special cairn.
  • The Bilingual by Andrew Leon Hudson – a tale of cultures clashing in which a map bridges the gap between understanding, but may lead to the collapse of one.
  • Mapping the Buzz of Insects by Daniel Ausema – living maps infuse the most unlikely of creatures…

Author Interviewed!

I’m rather pleased to say that I was recently interviewed for one of my homes away from home on the internet: SFFWorld.com, the best in SciFi Fantasy and Horror, from whose membership three fun anthologies of speculative fiction have issued, the last two of which included me.

Well, the interview went live a little while ago, so click on over if you’d like to see what I have to say about myself, my writing, my plans for the future, the global financial crisis (not featured), the Amazon/Hachette debacle, the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East (not featured) and the philosophy of Descartes (not featured).

Also, cricket.

Wars to End All Wars




Wars to End All Wars – Alternate Tales from the Trenches is a collection of seven short stories inspired by the “Great” War, though not necessarily following exactly where it led. In addition to a piece from the award-winning Elizabeth Moon, it contains original stories by Dan BiegerWilson GeigerG. L. LathianIgor Ljubuncic, Lee Swift, and, bringing things to a close, myself. My story, The Foundation, is a supernatural examination of why we should never forget the tragedies of the past–but also argues that how we remember them is important too.

As with the previous two anthologies put together by SFFWorld.com’s N. E. White, the first year’s proceeds from Wars to End All Wars will be donated to charity: this time to Doctors Without Borders, so every copy represents not just some interesting fiction for you but a little bit of valuable aid to a very worthy cause. Plus, it’s only 99 cents!

I hope you’ll give it a try, and let me know what you think.
