I am delighted to announce my sixth sale to Analog Science Fiction & Fact.
“Dangerous Company” is the second in my Open Source Space series, and features the same replica Apollo lander debuted in that story, Open Source Space, out in the July/August 2018 Analog. When the copilot on a lunar test flight goes crazy, Christina Craft must brave the lunar wilderness, solve a decades-old mystery, and “science her way” to salvation.
I just found out I’ve won the 2018 Jim Baen Memorial Short Story Award for my story, “Dangerous Company,” the second in my Open Space series. As a result, I’ll be going to the International Space Development conference, where one of the other honorees will be Amazon and Blue Origin founder, Jeff Bezos!
My third Jim Baen Memorial finalist, Open Source Space, has sold to Analog Science Fiction & Fact. I guess now I can say I’m a regular.
OSS is the story of a girl who goes into space to retrieve Snoopy, the derelict ascent stage from Apollo 10, and maybe avert World War III.
My story, For All Mankind, about the Apollo Program, the Tsar Bomba, and two women who save the world, appears in the July/August 2017 issue of Analog Science Fiction & Fact. Rocket Stack Rank calls it “meticulous and moving…quite an accomplishment…a Hugo Award worthy story.” And here’s the cover:
Comicpalooza 2017 is upon us!
I will be in booth 2632, in the middle-rear of Hall C, smack in the middle of the convention center, right next to NASA:
It’s going to be a great year.
This Felicia Day will be there talking about the new season of MST3K, cosplayers will abound, and there will be something for everyone, from celebrity audographs and photo ops to art, to “working” light sabers. If you’ve never been, come on out, it’s a thing to behold.
