I received word today that Digital Fiction Publications wants to reprint my “werewolf walks into a bar” story, “Paying the Tab.” Okay, it’s not quite like that, but there is a werewolf and he’s in a bar. But who’s picking up the tab–and what’s the final bill?

To keep you busy until it comes out, you can always check out Digital’s publications of “Dead Guy Walking,” and “Grinpa,” as evidence that these folks have impeccable taste in fiction.

Hooray! “Grinpa,” the story of a little boy who’s more concerned with his dying grandfather than with the HUGE events occurring in the world outside of that little hospital room, is going to be reprinted by Digital Fiction. I am very proud of this story and excited to see it venturing out into the world once more.

This marks my seventh sale of the year (a record), and my 30th overall. When I think back on all those years I worked and dreamed (and despaired) about ever being published, having done so seven times in one year, let alone for the 30th time, is a little hard to process.

As always, I will post here when the story is available. (In the meantime, there is a rumor circulating that there may be more of these announcements in the near future…)

What do you do if you’re the attorney appointed to defend an alien who helped exterminate a third of the human race?

My story “Rights and Wrongs” is now being podcast free of charge on StarShipSofa. The narrator is none other than my Taos Toolbox classmate, the Hugo-award winning author David D. Levine.

“Rights and Wrongs” examines the question: “Is it paranoia when somebody really is out to hurt you?” In this case, though, the question runs both ways. Five years ago, the shapeshifting Jani’i invaded Earth. After their defeat, one surviving Jani’i used his abilities to hide out here in search of a new life. Now he’s been exposed and put on trial for murder–but a murder he may not actually have committed. Is it right? Is it fair? And how do the ends justify the means?

Is it paranoia when the whole world really is out to get you? It depends on what you did…

I’m extremely pleased to announce that my novelette, “Rights and Wrongs,” originally published in Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show in March 2014, is going to be podcast on the Hugo Award-winning StarShipSofa. I don’t know when yet, but details will be posted when available.

“Rights and Wrongs” is the story of a post-invasion Earth, where most of the population was wiped out by aliens before the world fought back and won. One of the most terrifying things about the invasion was that the aliens could make themselves look just like humans, so that no one knew whom to trust. Paranoia and mob violence almost did the invaders’ job for them. Now, five years later, an alien has been discovered still living among us in disguise–and is accused of murdering a renowned scientist. His defense attorney must overcome universal prejudice–including his own–to ensure at least the appearance of a fair trial. But is a fair trial possible–or even desirable?

StarShipSofa has podcast work by Michael Moorcock, Joe Haldeman, Karen Joy Fowler, Bruce Sterling, Elizabeth Bear,  David Brin, Harry Harrison, and Ted Chiang, just to name a few. I am thrilled to be mentioned on the same web site as these people, let alone to have my work featured alongside theirs. It goes without saying that waiting to hear my story read out loud will be really, really hard. Never mind that this is my fourth podcast story; it only gets better and better.
