PW reviewed the Mothership anthology with a shout out to yours truly, which just about made my month. They had kind words for “The Taken” one of the stories in the mosaic novel, R/evolution. I’m proud to be part of this project and amongst so many fine writers. Beyond all that though I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the stories in this anthology: 40 multicultural tales of sci fi, horror, and fantasy compiled by editors Edward Austin Hall and Bill Campbell. I’m a big fan of spec fic tomes with something for everyone, and this particular one looks to be just that. It’s out now.
“The Swell of the Cicadas,” a ghost story, is out now in Prime Books’ Shades of Blue & Gray. The anthology has stories by Connie Wilkins, Nick Mamatas, and many more.
More Americans were killed during the years of the Civil War (1861-1865) than any other date in history. Men shattered,women lost, families broken.

Both finding themselves at odds in flesh and spirit…

People are starving, biogenetic adaptations are prevalent amongst the privileged, and the poor are being ground to a sharp and dangerous point. This is the future US where in the struggle for survival citizens are pushed to the breaking point as relationships start to fracture along the lines of class and race. These are stories of the leaders and the followers, the victims, heroes, and the everyday people caught in history’s wake, chief among them Dr. Ezekiel Carter, a genius in his field who decides to offer genetic reparations to those being left behind. In this world, what will become of the people at the fringes and more than that of humanity itself?
The city of Leiodare is unlike any other in the post-climate change United States. Within its boundaries, birds are outlawed and what was once a crater in Appalachia is now a tropical, glittering metropolis where Anna Armour is waiting.
An artist by passion and a factory worker by trade, Anna is a woman of special gifts. She has chosen this beautiful, traumatized city to wait for the woman she’s lost, the one she believes can save her from her troubled past and uncertain future.
