Coming In May: Crossed Wires and Other Very Short Stories

Finally! My collection of very short stories will be available on May 17 of this year. This was a long time in coming, and crossed through the first, second, and current waves of the pandemic. More information, including how and where to pre-order will be coming as we get closer. Here’s what it’s all about:

Twenty-four very short stories, twelve science fiction and twelve fantasy. From the future to now, from fairies to androids, from outer space to right next door, each of these short tales can be read in minutes. Explore worlds defined in small spaces, easy to pick up and read when you only have a moment to spare. Crossed Wires and Other Very Short Stories proves that sometimes, less really is more.

When a demon crosses into our world, the battle to defeat it also crosses the borders of realities in a deadly game of Cat and Mouse.

Invisible friends. The stuff of childhood imagination. Or are they? A Girl and Her Imp might have something to say about that. Set in the world of the Yo-Yo Files series by the author.

There’s Something in the Water, and for one vacationing family, that something means more than they imagine.

Red is the Color of one starship captain’s face when a first contact diplomatic dinner takes a wrong turn over a salad.

In the battle between mankind and the robots determined to exterminate them, one craftsman finds a way to create his own Bone Song.

Maintenance robots are great. They take the burden of routine jobs off human workers so they can devote their talent to the trickier jobs. But Crossed Wires can make a useful tool into a deadly opponent.

These and eighteen other miniature tales are waiting in Crosses Wires and Other Very Short Stories.

More about the stories, the cover reveal, and pre-order information as we get closer to the date.
