World Enough (And Time) will be released in e-book and printed editions on
April 2nd, 2019!
It’s a sci-fi comedy of manners and errors, full of twists and turns. If you
enjoy the work of Douglas Adams—or have always longed for something inspired
by P.G. Wodehouse or Kingsley Amis but set on, you know, a spaceship zipping
through the void at an appreciable fraction of the speed of light—you should
check it out.
My next book is forthcoming!
Read the full story
This is a short story that wasn’t quite ready in time to be included in Other
Copenhagens, but is very much in the spirit of the other stories in that book.
If you enjoy it, you might enjoy the
rest of the collection.
Abraham Washington, seven years a widower, had not put up Christmas lights in
seven years. But on December 21st—the same day that the late warm spell
finally snapped cold—Abraham’s son James called from San Francisco. While
Abraham was still breaking down the latest Steelers loss, James changed the subject.
“You’re not going to put up those lights this year, are you, Pop?”
Abraham hadn’t planned to. Why?
Because just yesterday Malina’s father (Malina was James’s wife) had taken a
spill from a ladder while putting up outdoor lights and broken his wrist and
sprained his ankle besides, and he was a full five years younger than Abraham.
So this was the year for Christmas lights.
Other Copenhagens (And Other Stories) is now available on Amazon, in
both dead tree and
glowy pixel formats.
I’m excited to be able to say that my next book, Other Copenhagens
(And Other Stories), will (finally) be forthcoming late this month or
