Short Stories

I started a new short story yesterday. I finished my work up a little early and didn’t want to start anything new in the last half hour of work so I wrote 1,200 words. I like what I wrote and made some changes at home while I watched TV. 1,200 words is a nice bit […]

The Skylark is Closing

One by one, all the old businesses in Nyack have passed on. Nyack is now a village trendy shops and antique stores in the day. At night there are dozens of almost identical bars catering to young people. One of the last places still open that I remember from by early days in Nyack is […]

This day in 1609

On September 14th, 1609 Henry Hudson was rumored to have stopped by Nyack, in his search for the Northwest Passage, not far from where I grew up. He either stopped by somewhere near the foot of Main Street or else up the River in Peekskill, NY, depending on who tells the story. He described Hook […]

Story Submissions

I got back my story from LightSpeed over the weekend. I reread the story and changed the ending. It was something I wanted to do but forgot about. I think the ending is a little better now. The main character is a 12-year-old girl with Downs Syndrome. I want to create unexpected characters and I […]

If Wishes . . .

I finished a story today named If Wishes . . . that wound up being 6400 words. This is a long story for me. I wrote part of this last year and then started over from scratch because I didn’t like the way it started. I have learned that you can’t just start a story […]

Rockets in Space

From “Rocket Summer” Rocket summer. People leaned from their dripping porches and watched the reddening sky. The rocket lay on the launching field, blowing out pink clouds of fire and oven heat. The rocket stood in the cold winter morning, making summer with every breath of its mighty exhausts. The rocket made climates, and summer […]

Hugo Award Stats

As you may remember, I was trying to get people to add one of my stories to their Hugo nomination lists. I only needed 10 votes to get on the final list for consideration and 23 votes to make it all the way to the ballot. This is an incredibly low number and I could […]

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
