Now is a good time to sign up for my newsletter. Shortly, I will be sending out to everyone a new short story in a new universe, and it will only be available for folks who sign up for the newsletter in the future. It is a lovely story about an octopus inventor and his invention, exploring the lands beyond the high tide, and the people he will meet.
The story is called Terranaut, and I rather enjoyed writing it. There will be more at some point.
Boundary Shock Status
Boundary Shock Quarterly magazine is a new venture, where I’m the editor and have invited a group of science fiction writers to contribute stories on a regular basis.
- Issue 006 – Ray Guns And Space Babes (coming soon)
- Issue 005 – Boneyard of Lost Dreams
- Issue 004 – Robots, Cyborgs, Androids, Oh My
- Issue 003 – Grand Theft Starship
- Issue 002 – Tuesday After Next
- Issue 001 – Captain’s Log
Starting in February, a quick trilogy that also flows from the exact end of St. Legier and deals with some fantastic adventures of CS-405 and her crew in the gap between St. Legier and Book #8. The titles, in order, are Queen Anne’s Revenge, Packmule, and Persephone. You can read Book #8 without them, but it will make more sense. (And lets me keep book 8 to only 140,000 words, when it could have been double that.
In January 2019, a Yan Bedrov novella entitled Two Bottles of Wine With The War God came out. It takes place around the end of St. Legier, somewhere else, and sets up things for Book 8 ( Winterhome).
Can’t Shoot Straight Gang Returns is now available everywhere. This is a full novel, following after the Can’t Shoot Straight Gang story in Boundary Shock Quarterly 003 (Grand Theft Starship).
Did you miss?
The Science Officer, Season One is now complete with the release of Omnibus #1 and Omnibus #2. I’m slowly at work on Season Two. So far, three short stories are done, one of which is available in Beyond The Mirror, Volume 6: Alternate Worlds.
Not much there yet, but will be adding more as we go. Please let me know what the Blaze Ward marketplace needs. Y’all enjoy. And let me know what other things I should add.
If you aren’t already on my newsletter, now would be a good time to sign up, as not everything goes into the blog. I might go to a monthly newletter, and not blog so much, so this might be the place to get your news.
Additionally, are you following me on Amazon? If you sign in as you and click the follow button, Amazon will send you a note about everything as I put it up for pre-order and as they go live. Never miss another story, even if you buy it from someplace else.
Uniforms of the Fleet, Volume One. Jessica and a dozen friends in full color. Get yours today.
As usual, I’m always open to gossip, spoilers, and questions. Most of the time, I think I have about three folks out there reading anything, and one of them is probably my mother. So feel free to say hi.
