Maximum Velocity is a best-of collection of stories from the Full-Throttle Space Tales anthology series, and my story “Finders Keepers,” from Volume 3, Space Grunts, made the cut! The whole series has been out of print for a while, so this is your chance to own a nice selection of Full-Throttle Space Tales in paper form.

“On My Side” is in A Quiet Shelter There from Haldley Rille Books. A large part of the anthology’s profits will be donated to Friends of Homeless Animals. The stories feature service animals with a speculative fiction twist. In “On My Side,” a soldier finds himself in a difficult situation after being separated from his squad.

The spaceflight documentary I cowrote, Space Next, is now playing in IMAX and dome theaters around the world, including the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. Click here for details and I hope you’ll find a theater near you!

In Progress

I’m doing a substantial new draft of an old novella, and after that is ready for submission I’ve got another novella to complete and then, as always, there’s my long-suffering steampunk novel and some short stories crying for attention.

I have six short e-books out from Stuck in the Middle Press. Work continues apace (if that word can be applied to the speed with which a glacier advances) on two longer projects. One is a collection of my humorous short-short stories and vignettes, the other is a shared-world collection coauthored with a friend of mine; we’re both working on stories for it.

Other possible projects are under discussion with Afterglow Studios, the producers of Space Next.
