Sale: Servant of the Aswang

I'm pleased to announce the sale of "Servant of the Aswang" to Penumbra eMag. I'm particularly proud of this story because it incorporates what is called the lower mythology of the Philippines. Being half Filipino, it's a subject I've been interested in for quite some time and I'm proud to be able to present a unique aspect of Filipino culture to the English speaking world. The fact that it's through Penumbra, one of the finest genre mags out there, only makes it that much more thrilling.

This marks my second sale of the year, and my fourth overall to Penumbra. Time to celebrate by writing a new story!

Sale: Stanley P. Strauss, Destroyer of the Universe

I just signed a contract with Stupefying Stories for my humorous sci-fi, "Stanley P. Strauss, Destroyer of the Universe." No official word on when it'll appear, but there's a rumor going around that it'll make its debut in a forthcoming Showcase very soon.

Tangent Online 2013 Recommended Reading List

Two of my stories made the Tangent Online 2013 Recommended Reading List. They are: "A House in the Woods" (Penumbra Vol 2 Issue 4), and "Burning Men" (Penumbra Vol 2 Issue 9). The short story writing world is a small place, with countless brilliant authors. With that kind of stiff competition around it's nice to be noticed.

Ares Magazine Kickstarter

Ares Magazine is a fledgling market, featuring a full-size (8.5" x 11") print magazine that includes 80 pages of fiction and other content. It will wrap around a complete and ready-to-play board game made uniquely for each issue. Best of all (in my humble opinion), the inaugural issue will feature my story "The (Zeroes and) Ones We Love," a 3.5K word sci-fi about robots, parenthood, and more! The magazine will be released in whole or in part (game and magazine, magazine-only, game-only, e-book version) to satisfy the needs of every reader / gamer. Check out their video:

And donate to their Kickstarter here to make this awesome new project come to life!
