Zombie Hitler Vs. Neil Armstrong

Zombie Hitler Vs. Neil Armstrong came out today.  I sold the story… well, it was last summer I think.  I got to use it for a public reading and it was well-received. (Meaning I cracked people up.)

Jupiter Wrestlerama

My story “Jupiter Wrestlerma” is now available in Lightspeed Magazine Issue 53. Two-Ton Tony had a hard body, and though Karen knew the facts of life cold and backward by the time she got her chance to push him against a wall, she’d never had anything so sweet. Biceps like boulders, arms to swing on […]
