The consolidation of my short story collections has concluded. First up is the fantasy collection, Elsewhere Stories:
This collection of fantasy stories contains tales of magic and might, as well as tales of invention and compassion. Also part of this collection are two novellas, one expressing concern for the future of the land while other portrays hope for another.
These stories have been previous published in magazines and in self-published collections, as have both novellas. All are gathered in a single volume for the first time.
Next is the science fiction collection, Tomorrow's Stories:
This collection contains two dozen science fiction short stories. They show hope, fear, hard work, and compelling characters. These stories have appeared in a variety of publications over almost 20 years.
Also included in this collection is the novella “A Story from Richland.” A stranger appears in Richland on the planet of Ogallah, wanting to make the village his home. He’s willing to integrate into his new community, but unwilling to talk about his past. Will the Mayor of this little town learn anything about the new resident?
Both these collections are available in print and ebook editions. For store links, check the SF/F Books page.
Here's the latest update on how much I'm writing this year.
August was a good month. Even with a few lost sessions due to errands and my annual eye exam, I was able to write at a strong pace. I wrote 217 pages in August. That's 17 pages over the session goals for the month!
The work I've been writing has been moving along well. I've almost reached the point where material I had written previously was put into the book I've been writing. The pace will probably slow as I look over the old stuff and alter it to fit the new book. Once that's done, it'll be time to move on to a new project.
Here's hoping for more good progress in September!
