My bit of surreal oddness, "The Life and Times of Otto van Maark and His Luxuriant Beard," is available now at Liquid Imagination.

Some updates:

"Lightblind" from a couple of posts upthread has now appeared in audio, courtesy of the amazing Tina Connolly and Toasted Cake.

"Forks and Skewers," which was written back in college, around the same time as "14B," has a nice reading up at The Way of the Buffalo.

And a possibly familiar name is attached to today's Escape Pod episode, "Nemesis"...

"Dragonslayer" is in the current issue of Intergalactic Medicine Show!  (You gotta pay, I'm afraid, but it's a pretty good 'zine.)

I forgot this was here.  :-(

At any rate, in addition to the no-longer-recent appearance of "Wings" at Pseudopod, I am pleased to announce that "No More Teachers, No More Books" is now live at the incomparable Tina Connolly's flash fiction podcast, Toasted Cake.

My short story "Silver and Copper, Iron and Ash" is in the Coins of Chaos anthology (Also available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.)  There is a one-chapter preview at the first site, which also happens to be my story, so if you just want to read it for free, I guess you can.  It's a pretty fun anthology overall, though.

(If you need more information, the premise was to write a story about evil magic coins, specifically the old Indian-head nickels from the turn of the last century, which were often carved by homeless vagrants into new designs as a sort of oddball form of folk art.  So basically some nickels show up and fuck some shit up.  Take that, dimes, you pansies.)

So after four months of nada, zilch, zip, I get two acceptance notes right in a row.  o_0

"Roundabout" will be appearing in Intergalactic Medicine Show sometime in 2014.  It is about fighting the interstate highway system with a quarterstaff.

"Systems" will be in Cemetery Dance at a currently unspecified time.  It is about crows and responsibility and going crazy.

You ain't kidding.  I've been watching the responses trickling in; most everyone that I know who had something left there had had it for nearly a year.

Enginesong is now out at Beneath Ceaseless Skies (and will be in their podcast next issue.)  This one started life as a drabble based on my friend Lanse's invitation to write a story based on some of his cockamamie customized wargame miniatures.  I started from a steampunk-ish train engine with AT-AT legs.  That became a 200-word story, then a 500-word flash, and finally this. 

It is about duty and desperation and trains with big honking metal feet.  Choo-choo.

Also, it appears that the corrected narration has been uploaded for The Alchemist's Children over at Cast of Wonders, so that's out now, too.  :-D  This was my story that appeared in the first volume of UFO and which is much spoofier and more light-hearted, in case you need a palate cleanser after riding the rails and working up a powerful thirst.

Enginesong has appeared on the BCS podcast.  If you didn't read it, now you can just put it on and do the dishes while humming to drown it out.  Hooray!
