I have a story in this anthology, TREES, entitled “The Birchies,” from Jersey Pines Ink. This story is part of a collection of tales of horror about all the ways that trees can haunt, scare, and kill you; in my tale, I gave the trees a few advantages to help them as they try to wipe humanity off the map… This book can be purchased at both Amazon and B&N.
I’m happy to share that Fantasia Obscura is coming back! Atomic Luau, which is what Forces of Geek will become in
September early 2023, will start running new reviews of old movies.
I’m excited to resume the work at a new venue, and will have more to say once everything goes online. I may even have an ask to make of you…
I have a story in the anthology The Fans are Buried Tales entitled “The British Invasion Fan’s Tale (or You Never Give Me Your Money).” The editor, Peter David, put out a call for pieces for a themed collection published by Crazy 8 Press, based on a real life event, when Farpoint 2003 was snowed in.

I had fond memories of working there, and encourage you to enjoy all the works that everyone contributed to the magazine over the years.
Press Appearances and Presentations
In addition to my writing, I have also made appearances in the following places:
In January of 2021, pulling together research I made for the character Samuel de Cadiz in Raging Gail, I gave a presentation online about Jewish pirates, which was posted to YouTube soon after:
In September of 2020, I was a guest on Ethan Alexanian’s Fans on the Run podcast, discussing how the Beatles influenced my writing:
In 2014, I was a guest on Hour of the Wolf, Jim Freund’s sci-fi talk show, which was a lovely discussion that concluded with my doing a reading of the story “Act Naturally,” which I describe in Alt Together Now.
