“Head to Head” Published in Triptych Tales

Triptych Tales

My story about a redneck telepath has been published by Triptych Tales.

Here’s the opening to “Head to Head”:

The voice of God spoke inside Walter’s head. He had his doubts, of course, but eight years of Catholic school are hard to shake off. So he played along — you know, just in case.

“No Place for a Hero” Published in Galaxy’s Edge Magazine

Galaxy's Edge Magazine #11 CoverMy story about a superhero named Bernie has been published in Galaxy’s Edge, edited by Mike Resnick.

Here’s the opening to “No Place for a Hero”:

Bernard Kowalski destroyed the Verrazano Bridge during the Friday rush.

Instead he got thirty years in prison.
