Give a listen to Generations Geek, a podcast my daughter does with me. We talk about geeky stuff and have cool guests like sci-fi writers and astronauts.

Strange as it may seem, all this random writing and editing is my only job, so if you’ve enjoyed any of the stuff I’ve done or perhaps you’ve seen me on a panel at a con, please consider visiting my Ko-fi page. You can read free book reviews from my archives and maybe drop something in the tip jar! Thanks.

What’s Going On

I’ve got a bunch of new stuff out! First up, from my own Stuck in the Middle Press, is The Big Dark & Meet John Doe, the first two Tales of the Weird World War by myself and William Leisner. My story “The Ghosts of Glenmirror,” is also on sale now in Castle of Horror 4. Then there’s Thrilling Adventure Yarns 2021, an anthology from Crazy 8 Press including my nostalgic sci-fi story “The Day It Came From Beyond Outer Space.” Also available is Turning the Tied, a charity anthology from the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers, including my story “In the Time of the Martians,” a tip of the hat to H. G. Wells. The forthcoming Outside In Wants to Believe, recently announced by ATB Publishing, includes a piece by me on the X-Files episode “William.”

Beyond that, I’ve got various irons in the fire, some for traditional publishing, some for my own indie projects. This year I’m putting out my first publish-on-demand titles; I’d had plans for that last year, but with the pandemic canceling conventions and making everything hell, I decided to wait. In 2021, I’m circling back to those manuscripts.

Look for monthly updates on my blog about my writing (moving slowly) and editing (making those deadlines). I’m still copyediting the Star Trek fiction line for Gallery Books, as well as various titles for Baen Books. I’m picking up more and more work from small presses and indie authors.

Space Next, the first spaceflight documentary I cowrote, is still playing in some IMAX and dome theaters around the world. Check here to see if it’s in a theater near you. The next one I cowrote, Touch the Stars is also in release and appearing here and there. Pandemic update: Obviously, the status of where you can safely see these films varies wildly as the world navigates the corona virus nightmare.
