The Vanishing of M. Renoir (in print!)

I’m most excited to announce that “The Vanishing of M. Renoir” has been accepted for the Vortex anthology by Clarendon House now available in both the paperback and the Kindle digital edition.

 

This is one of my favorite short stories. I sometimes wonder where it came from. I’ve heard Stephen King in his talks say that people often ask, “Where do you get your ideas?” And his answer, mostly, is the same as mine: I just don’t know. Could be anywhere. Sometimes a spark just happens and there you are. But this one, The Vanishing of M. Renoir, is a complete mystery to me. One day I sat down to write and there it was. That was one of my lucky days.

The Cleaner (Encore!)

I’m so very excited to announce that my short story, “The Cleaner” (originally published by Tuck Magazine) was published on the first of May by a wonderful publisher: Literally Stories. This website publishes quality fiction and I’m very proud that they have included my work for a second time with this publication.

I was also overwhelmed to read there the following review:

Brilliant, moving and a heartbreaking image to leave the reader with.
Super stuff!!!

Walls

My story, “Walls,” a speculative future piece, is available now in Clarendon House’s new science fiction anthology entitled Galaxy. This story is, I feel, more social commentary than science fiction but the futuristic setting does lend itself to placement within the science fiction genre.

Just Before Dark

“Just Before Dark” is a short piece of fiction of which I am most proud. It tells a rather sad story and yet it speaks to conditions all too prevalent in the world today.

I am very pleased to announce that this work appears in a Clarendon House Publications flash fiction anthology entitled Flashpoint and is available now at Amazon in the Kindle edition:
