I’m pleased to announce that Sci-Fi Saturday Night has made my flash fiction story, “Aftershocks,” part of their Fiction Friday series.   They’re calling it, “…one of the most original and frightening stories we have ever posted.” Which makes me feel pretty honored and humbled.  Ok, and pleased.

“Aftershocks” was published by Wily Writers in May of 2010.  It is scheduled to be reprinted in The Best of Wily Writers – Volume 2 early in 2012.

Thanks to The Dome at Sci-Fi Saturday Night for his interest in “Aftershocks.”  You can check out the Fiction Friday post here.

I received the happy news today from Angel Leigh McCoy that she has selected my short story “Aftershocks” to include in The Best of Wily Writers, Volume 2.  “Aftershocks” was originally published on Wily Writers in May of 2010 and I’m both honored and delighted that Angel picked it since they have lots and lots of good stories to choose from.

The book is scheduled for publication in late 2011.  More news here as events warrant.  In the meantime, you can still purchase Night-Mantled: The Best of Wily Writers (Volume 1).

Happy summer reading everyone.
