I’m kicking off 2019 right with publication of what might be the most Shvartsman story ever. It has Lovecraftian humor, coffee, tech geekery, secret history, Dunkin’ Donuts fan fiction, and loads of snark. If you enjoy my humor stories, I highly recommend you don’t miss this one. It’s part of the Release the Virgins anthology, alongside fiction by David Gerrold, Allen Steele, Sharon Lee, Jody Lynn Nye, and many other excellent authors. (And no, it’s not as racy as the book title might suggest.)
Although this story introduces the Coffee Corps universe in which I’ve now written several stories, it is actually the second Coffee Corps story to be published and the third to be sold. So if you like it, be sure to also read:
“The Hunt for the Vigilant” in Oceans anthology, out now
“The Gilga-Mess” in Intergalactic Medicine Show, forthcoming this Spring.
