Gathering Meanders is a story of two grown women having the time of their lives, with all the intense turns and slapstick detours that entails.
This book climbed right inside my heart and held it tight until the end. This book kept me awake nights back when it was just an early draft, even before I knew we’d get to publish it. Readers, rest up. INK releases tomorrow.
Work, work, work. I love working. Free time is good, too, because I have a lot of projects to labor on at home, but I find industrious leisure even more satisfying when it’s married to steady, paid employment. And if a job is less than dreamy? Well. At least it’s fodder for my fiction. Or, […]
The end has arrived. These are the last two stories in the Subversion anthology, but at least they provide a fine sendoff. Both warn us about the dangers of being manipulated by extremism, and both emphasize the value of personal responsibility as the antidote for that social ill. Timothy T. Murphy’s Received Without Content raises […]
At first glance, the next three stories in the Subversion anthology don’t seem to have a whole lot in common. They take place in a dreary, futuristic call center, a fantastic world of dragons and their human snacks, and Hell itself. The characters are worker drones, royalty, and demons.

It reminds us that even progressive social movements have roots. Times change, the torch is passed, and new generations rise to the occasion. Some generations […]

Each in their own way, they describe our equally incorrigible drive toward freedom at the individual level and at the scale of civilization. Pushaway by Melissa S. Green is my favorite kind of story.

I wrote a story called Parent Hack. It has troubled kids making troubling decisions in a troubled system. It’s about necessity and the invention of family. There’s an excerpt below to entice you to buy the book my story is in. *** A hidden intercom crackled, “What do you want?” Nicolas’s keen, dark eyes spotted […]
The thing about fighting for our lives is that it’s usually nothing like the movies. Yes, there are riots and heroic medical interventions in real life, but ‘the good fight’ is better defined as a lifelong campaign of small resistive acts than it is by its few explosive battles. In the spirit of long wars […]
