The Golem of Deneb Seven Cover!

November 30, 2017

Here are the e-book and print final covers for The Golem of Deneb Seven and Other Stories in all their glory! Art by M. Wayne Miller and cover design by Holly Heisey, who is absolutely amazing at this cover thing (as you can probably tell by looking at these:

 

 

 

And here, for comparison is the original artwork used in creating the cover:

 

The kickstarter campaign for this book has reached full funding and it will be coming out in May. As I write this post, there are still a couple of hours left to back the campaign if you wish to do so!

Publication: “Untilted” by K. A. Teryna

November 14, 2017

My translation of “Untilted” by K. A. Teryna is live and free to read at Apex magazine today.

This is the most challenging translation I ever undertook. The story relies on intentional misspellings and linguistic cues to work. Even the title is a pun! In Russian the title is “Бес Названия” which literally means “The Demon of the Name” but is also one letter off from “Untitled.” My friend, himself a translator of considerable skill, declared this story “untranslatable.” So I’m extremely proud of having not only translated it, but helped it find a home at such a wonderful market.

Please, go read it!

The Golem of Deneb Seven and Other Stories

November 7, 2017

I just launched a campaign to fund my second collection, The Golem of Deneb Seven and Other Stories. If you’ve enjoyed my writing, I hope you will take a look. (And if you’re primarily familiar with my work as an editor, there are sample stories linked there that will give you a taste of what my own writing is like.)

This book will include approximately 30 short stories, including the following:

• Refugees with a salvaged mech suit find that family ties are stronger than armor.

• Two artificial intelligences in love turn the world into their playground.

• Modern-day Dante is guided through hell by the ghost of Bob Marley.

• Ancient gods and monsters stalk the halls of a 1920s night club.

• A young woman must save her planet by committing an act of terror.

• In the rekindled space race between the United States, Russia, and India, the winner might be the nation willing to sacrifice the most.

Please take a look for yourself:
