It’s been a busy, busy few weeks. Here are some relevant updates on my writing and publishing endeavors.
* Eridani’s Crown is coming out October 22 and is now available for preorder on Amazon as an ebook. Print books will be available for preorder via B&N very soon and eventually on all other platforms as well. The novel just got a really flattering review from Publishers Weekly and I hope more media coverage is to follow!
* The new issue of Future SF is due out September 15. The theme of this issue is “Alien Invasion.” I will reveal the TOC and cover here on the blog in the next few days. Watch this space!
* Unidentified Funny Objects 6 will soon be released as an audio book! I’ve partnered with Escape Artists to create this book narrated by EA’s own Marguerite Kenner and Alasdair Stuart. It’s in the final stages of the approval process at Audible and should be available shortly.
* I will begin prep work on Unidentified Funny Objects 8 soon; this means there will be a new volume of the series in 2020, after a year’s hiatus!
* Funny Science Fiction is available for only $1.99 this week! Go to www.publisherspick.com to snag a discounted copy!

I just posted “The Lekar’s Fortune” a flash story set in the world of Eridani’s Crown. You can read it here for free.
The Kickstarter campaign for the novel has about a week left. If you haven’t pledged to secure your copy of the novel yet, hopefully this will help convince you to do so. 🙂

I’m very excited to share that “The Rule of Three” by Lawrence M. Schoen which I edited and published in issue 1 of Future SF this past December is a Nebula Award finalist! This is an excellent first contact story, but reminiscent of golden age SF and modern in its sensibilities. If you haven’t read or listened to it yet, please do so! It’s available online for free in both formats:
Read “The Rule of Three” online
Listen to “The Rule of Three” narrated by Wulf Moon
At this point the entire first issue has been unlocked and is free to read online, and I’m hard at work putting together issue 2, which will launch on March 15.
