And Unidentified Funny Objects 3 is out!  Amazon linky

This anthology not only continues to feature awesome authors, but it's one of the few sources of well-curated spec-fic humor on the markets today, and contains my own contribution: "Why I Bought Satan Two Cokes on the Day I Graduated High School," which pretty much does what it says on the tin.

Mythic Delirium returns with, among many others, my story "And All the Tribes of the Earth Shall Mourn," in which a man fails to understand other people's religious ecstasy, and also McDonald's.

The hits come fast and furious!  "Columbidae" is available now in Flash Fiction Online!

It is one thousand words and is about pigeons pretty nearly exclusively.

Today, "Toadwords" is available from Daily Science Fiction.  Having toads come out of your mouth always seemed like a weird curse to me, and rereading the fairy tale as an adult, I was struck by how little the "bad" daughter did to earn this kind of life-long punishment.  (How many people would really respond to random strangers' requests for assistance with full compliance?  At best, you're going to get, "Sorry, I'm busy.")

So here is Fanny after a lifetime of dealing with the aftermath, or at least one possible interpretation of her.
