Do you like stories? Do you like quarters? Do you like reading? Do you like reprints? Do you like five?!
Wait, wait, wait. Where was I going with this…?
Ah, right. I have five new reprints (does that even make sense?) available over on Quarter Reads as of right now. Here are links to each, and where they first appeared:
- Nikumaroro, July 1937 – In which Amelia Earheart attempts to co-exist with a number of coconut crabs, with unpredictable results. First appeared in Fine Linen Magazine, January 2015.
- Oubliette – In which Neuroscience! And Regret! And Long Periods of Time Glossed Over! And other fun things. First appeared in Flash Fiction Online, April 2014. (Where you can, in fact, still read it for free if you’d prefer!)
- Little More than Shadows – Which plays with the boundaries between dream and reality, and does not use quotation marks (you have been warned). First appeared in Daily Science Fiction, November 18, 2014. (Again, it is still online for free if you can’t spare a quarter.)
- The Robotic Poet Reads Bashō – A story masquerading as a scholarly article on haiku criticism. First appeared in Beyond Borderlands in September of 2014. (Not only is it still available for free, but so is my essay, “Fishing for Bashōs,” in Modern Haiku which treats the same theme at much greater depth and without the SFnal trope on top of it.)
- Against the Dark – An older story, obliquely inspired by Dunsany and Lovecraft’s Dream Cycle of Unknown Kadanth stories. Not much like what I write these days, overall. :) First published in the Journal of Microliterature in August 2010 (link)
If any of those sound like they’d be up your alley, go give them a browse!
