I liked the story.  Congratulations and good luck at winning the cash prize!  I see you're in good company with Mr. DeRego.

Facehuggers don't have heads!

Come with me and Journey Into... another fun podcast

Yeah, if he's in this particular contest period, I've got some stiff competition.

He's been on there a few times.

And, thanks for the good words.

Telepathic zombies were pretty cool.  Shades of "The Skull-Face Boy," a bit.  Good luck!

Yeah, I had hoped I had an original thought there, but, what the hey. Skull-Face Boy was a good story. It's an honor to be mentioned in the same sentence.

For some reason, I really enjoy writing Zombie fiction, much to the chagrin of my wife. So, Tales of the Zombie War has a couple more stories to review. We'll see what happens.

If you liked 'Sides', though, you'll love 'Trapped'.

Well done! 

Well, as far as I'm concerned, I can die happy.

When you write a short story, and an author comments favorably, and you can pull his books from you own bookshelf, you have arrived.

Thank you! Now, I'll go die with this smile before something bad happens...

I read, therefore I am...happy.

OK, so it was a case of mistaken identity in the above message. Still made a new friend in Kevin.

And, Ryan published another of my stories on the site:

And, another "It's official"

I am now in the cast rotation for http://www.starshipexcelsior.com/index.php

I'll start with redshirts and nameless ensigns, then, if I am blessed, move up to bigger parts.

This podcasting thing might just catch on some day...
