Book Release: Windows Out

My new science fiction short story collection, Windows Out, is now available on Amazon. It will also be available soon in paperback on and elsewhere. This is a collection of twelve tales that took several years to write. From the back cover:

Two rival robotics engineers visit an abandoned Martian battlefield and discover they are not alone. A scientist flies an electric crow through time to steal a breakthrough device only to find his moves are being countered by a future version of himself. A reporter doubts a scientist’s claim of teleportation until he meets the scientist’s son over a cup of strange tea.

From the edge of space to the depths of the sea, these tales are windows to worlds beyond our own. These worlds are bounded only by the drive and imagination of those who inhabit them.

I'll also have more updates soon on the third book in the Secrets of the Elements series, The Fire and the Anvil.

Windows Out Update

As promised, I have another science fiction short story collection on the way. This one is titled Windows Out and has a dozen short stories that span a variety of subjects...everything from self-replicating machines to time travel corporate espionage to an apartment populated with unruly appliances. Although there will be some older stories included, such as "The Everbloom Factory" and "Fermat's Last Theorem of Robotics", most of the content will be new. I hope to have this collection done by sometime in February.

What's next after this book? The third novel in the Secrets of the Elements series, The Fire and the Anvil. It will round out the trilogy and will also pull in elements from short stories such as "Firebugs" and "Dust in the Whirlwind". I will have a lot more to say about that in the coming weeks.
