Three and a half years after I got ambushed by a crazy, melodramatic story idea, CRUEL BEAUTY is a published book! Available for buying in all sorts of book places!

If you’re still feeling dubious, remember you can read the first 70 pages online.

Short Story Reprint: “Apotheosis”

My short story “Apotheosis” has been reprinted by Lightspeed Magazine! It’s available now as part of the ebook edition of the magazine, and it will be posted to the website on January 7.

When I wrote this story in 2004, and for quite a few years after, it was my favorite thing I’d ever written. I wouldn’t quite call it that now, but I still like it very much, and it’s exciting to see it in print again.
