What a strange year 2017 became for my writing schedule. When I released Escaping Infinity last year – almost to the day as a matter of fact – I would not have believed what I was going to wind up writing.

Another Superversive anthology, Manthology, will also have a story written by me, The Last Hunt.
And lest I forget, somewhere during all of that I also managed to write a short story, entitled Nothing Ever Happens Here, for Silver Empire’s soon-to-be-released Secret Stairs anthology.
