I’m pleased to have a short science fiction story featured in Futuristica vol II, just published in May 2017 by Metasagas Press. “Across an Aeon” is about a woman who breaks laws to take a one-way trip to the far distant future in search of her missing husband and daughter. There she finds the unexpected and intertwined fates of humankind, the planet Earth, and what happened to the people she loves.
I’m really proud of this story. I think it’s one of my best short fiction pieces.
Time Travel Fiction
For some deeply buried psychological reason, I keep exploring time travel in my short fiction, although I avoid that can of worms in my novels. My previous short stories about time travel are freely available on Twilight Times and Escape Pod.
Thank you to Chester Hoster and Katy Stauber at Metasagas Press for their work in editing and publishing the Futuristica anthologies. I really appreciate their generosity with contributor’s copies, and their dedication to communicating with the authors and staying professional in every respect. Shout-out to Zach Chapman, whose story about gaming and VR also appears in this anthology. I’m looking forward to reading it. And the rest of them!
