My 2019 publications…

I’ve had a novel and four stories published in 2019. (Alas, I missed the deadline to submit my stories for the Aurealis Awards: my fault for not getting through the infinity known as my email queue .)

Shadows in the Stone: a Book of Transformations, IFWG Publishing (November, 2019). I consider this my fantasy sequel to The Memory Cathedral. It’s also a purposely distorted version of Paradise Lost.

“Mr. Death Goes to the Beach”, Asimov’s (March, 2019).This story appeared in the Gardner Dozois Memorial edition of Asimov’s. I wrote the story for Gardner, who was one of my dearest friends.

“The Carbon Dreamer”, Shivers VIII (ed. Richard Chizmar) (February, 2019). This story was originally bought by Harlan Ellison for The Last Dangerous Visions.

“The Last Maskil”, Holy C.O.W.! SF Stories from the Center Of the World (ed. D. Avraham and Allen Dyen-Shapiro) (July, 2019). This novelette takes place in my Shadows in the Stone universe.

“In Re the Strange Fate of Samuel Langhorne Clemens”, The War of the Worlds: Battleground Australia (ed. Steve Proposch, Bryce Stevens, and Christopher Sequeira) (2019). I couldn’t help myself: the characters include Mark Twain and H.G. Wells…and, of course, a myriad of dastardly Martians!
