Greetings, Happy Readers!
Not a lot of progress on the writing front to report. I did do a couple of short stories, and I’ve spent a good bit of time helping to edit an anthology (more on that at a later date). Mostly, I’ve been working on outdoor projects and gardening.
My hope is to refocus and start catching up on my reading, and thus blogging, of some good books. Fingers crossed!
In the mean time, I’d like to announce that another Re-release in the Planetary Anthology series has officially gone live!
Oh, look! A video vaguely related to the post! Still not sure why Venus was depicted as a vampire and a devil, but meh… it was the 80’s and the costumes were hot!
Now check out the anthology with it’s awesome new cover!
OK, I admit it, that segue isn’t nearly as good as the last one. I’ll try to do better next time.
Anyway, you can read my story “37 Shades of Yellow” from my Horizons Unlimited Universe in this anthology. Here’s the blurb for my story.
Terraforming Venus puts human pioneers into a constant fight against a raging environment, but the real challenge is finding that special someone with whom to fight the fight.
There are more re-releases to come, plus the fantastic new releases as well!

Make an author happy! Leave a Review on Amazon! Here are links to my novels if you would like to go do that!
If you like intrigue, humor and a bit of speculative technological supposition, you should pick up a copy of my technothriller-comedy eConscience Beta from Amazon today!
Peacekeeper Incorporated’s breakthrough nanotechnology could bring repeat offense crime to an end, freeing society from the need for criminal incarcerations. But first, they have to finish testing it. With funding on the line, and time to prove out the project getting short, the lead scientist must find a way speed things up. That’s unfortunate for his guinea pig, and anyone who would stand in his way.
Can the goal of ending most crime justify committing one… even a few?
And what happens when you conflate altruism with egotism?
Find out in eConscience Beta, where two lab techs and an uncouth petty criminal must outwit a brilliant but sociopathic scientist who’ll stop at nothing to establish his legacy as the man who ended crime.
If Science Fiction Space Adventure is more your speed, then you should check out my anthology, Horizons Unlimited: Volume 1.
Matter conversion technology—Matt-Con—has broadened the scope of mankind’s existence. It has opened up the real possibility of viable colonies on other planets in our solar system, and even space itself. Anywhere matter can be captured or energy from the sun can be felt, the possibility of expanding human habitation exists.
In this volume:
Quicksilver (short story)
The space station Chariot of Helios—on its way to Mercury to become a power collection station for Earth’s growing need for energy to power matt-con tech—encounters a strange anomaly that threatens ship and crew.
Null Gravitas (short story)
New crew and new relationships form above the skies of Venus. A post-prequel to Escaping Aurora.
Escaping Aurora (novella)
The sudden destruction of mankind’s first atmospheric terraforming platform leaves three unlucky exonauts struggling to survive in the skies of Venus aboard a cobbled-together airship. Meanwhile, the commander of the space station above battles obstacles that might keep her from rescuing her stranded husband and crew in time.
