April/May 2015 of Asimovs should have a story in it by me.

There will be a flash fiction contest shortly. Very shortly. Jesus, but I am behind on getting information out to contestants!

Hold on!

Recent News...

I'm deep in space, a quantum clone transmitted via ansible and orbiting a distant desert world.

While I'm away, I happened to receive a contract in the post from ANALOG, who will be publishing my short story "Farmer" excerpted from an unpublished novel that also includes "Dolores, Big and Strong" from Asimov's April/May 2014, and "Paul and his Son" coming, next month, in Asimov's April/May 2015.

Mustard is super easy to make at home, and I don't understand why anyone buys it now that I've made it once. Grind the seeds in a blender; add liquid, optional spices/herbs; stir and adjust until liquidy consistency that is mustard-y; let sit overnight. Boom. Delicious Mustard.

Cat, Free To Good Home if You Hurry

UPDATE: Too late! She's now in the care of the Humane Society.
