It’s long since time for me to mention the stories that magazines and anthologies have been kind enough to publish in the past months.
“Taking Care of Business” is a science fiction story I wrote for Dean Wesley Smith’s “Write 30 Stories in 60 Days Challenge” back in 2017. An Elvis impersonator on Mars finds a way to deal with devastating health issues, consistent with his reverence for The King. Dean was then kind enough to include this story in Pulphouse, Issue 8 of 2019. You can find the magazine, electronic or print, at all online bookstores, here a selection
or naturally at WMG Publishing: https://pulphousemagazine.com/the-magazine/issue8/
“Sagan in the Past” is another science fiction story I wrote for this challenge. Sagan, a cat, plays an important role in a time-travel story that begins on a university campus that has certain similarities with Michigan State University. Barb Giorgi, aka Barbara G. Tarn, was kind enough to include this story in her anthology Future Earth Tech.
You can find the magazine, electronic or print, at all online bookstores, here a selection:
“Katie’s Visions” is also a product of this challenge, one I worried about finding a home for, since it isn’t science fiction. Maybe you could call it historical fantasy. Katharina von Bora (Martin Luther’s wife) gets visions from Joan of Arc who has her own agenda for wanting to encourage Katharina. The wonderful people at Propertius Press included this story in their anthology Whispers from the Universe. It is available, electronic and print, at most online stores but also easily at Propertius Press, which does not charge for postage or handling, even on international orders.

“Father Otto” is a story I wrote in 2016 for the 2017 Anthology Workshop in Lincoln City, Oregon. Thanks to kind editor Dayle A. Dermatis, it became my first professional sale to the Fiction River issue 33 Doorways to Enchantment. “Father Otto” is an homage to one of my favorite people at the chancery office of the Archdiocese of Freiburg. Naturally all figures are mere figments of my imagination, but inspired by real people. The story itself takes place on the second floor of the historic chancery office building in Freiburg, Germany.
It is available, electronic and print, at all online bookstores, here a selection:
