I’m a bit late announcing this one, but I’m delighted to announce that my epistolary sci-fi story–“Subject Stellar”–has been published in Spark: A Creative Anthology, Volume VI.
It’s like someone took the night sky and wrapped her in it. Constellations of pin-prick stars beam from her black-abyss skin. She’s devoid of features–no lips, no mouth, no eyes. I could see where her eyes should have been, with only space in its infinite emptiness stretched over empty sockets.
Get a look at this amazing cover art:
This delightful cover art was created by Goodloe Byron, who also had these inspiring words to say in the foreword:
The stories in this issue are fables. They are lies and departures from the world. But these lies are attempts by their authors to move the audience with an ancient literary arithmetic.
Volume VI is, as I’ve come to expect, full of excellent stories by excellent authors. I am happy to be included in the pages of yet another volume of Spark. What’s even more exciting is that–for what I believe is the first time–I’m sharing the pages of a collection with my good friend Jeff Suwak. I just know you’re going to love his tale in this collection, “The Familiar and his Alchemist.”
I have very much enjoyed working the Brian Lewis and the excellent staff of Spark: A Creative Anthology. I hope you’ll take the time to pick up a copy of this latest volume and maybe review it if you get the chance. But I’d like to do more than hope.
I have two extra PRINT copies of Volume VI so I’m going to host a giveaway. Unfortunately, I can only ship to US addresses; I apologize to my international friends for this limitation. The contest will run from March 5th at midnight until March 12th at midnight. You can enter by clicking this link here to go right to the giveaway on my Facebook author page. Be sure to enter if you can and best of luck to you!
Thanks for reading,
