“Inky, Blinky, and Me” - Man and Machine anthology (Science fiction)
“Dark Side Matters” - Drawing Destiny, a Sixth World Tarot anthology (Science fantasy)

Editor – Short Form
I edited both EGM Shorts and Speculate! short fiction in 2016.

Remember, you need have been a member of last year’s Worldcon, and/or be a member of this year’s Worldcon, and/or be a member of next year's Worldcon to be eligible to either nominate or vote.

It is all Shadowrun all the time right now. I'm deep into MAKEDA RED and that's pretty much all I'm doing right now. So, here's some links for you and a chance for you to win a set of Melissa Allen audiobooks.

REVIEW: Here's a great review of NEVER LET ME. I really appreciate reviews like this.

REVIEW: Here's a really good review of APOCALYPSE GIRL DREAMING. I love the fact that some of the stories stick with her.

REVIEW: Here's a great review of DECISION POINTS. The reviewer says that my story, "The Prince of Artemis V," hit a home run.

SALE: Apocalypse Ink Productions is having a sale of my Karen Wilson Chronicles books! If you were waiting to get any of the individual trade paperbacks, Now is the time to get them. After May 1st, they are gone for good. Karen Wilson Chronicles Trade Paperback Last Chance Sale. 4 Trade for $30.

Bubble and Squeek is full of all kinds of good news. It helps me get over this terrible throat thing ("acute pharyngitis") I've been dealing with. Thank goodness for antibiotics. I am no longer contagious and will be at Norwescon.

Article: Never Let Me Sleep got a shout out in this article: 13 Horror Books that Might Be the Next Hit Movie. Can I just say, "Yes, please."?

Audible: All three Melissa Allen books (Never Let Me Sleep, Never Let Me Leave, Never Let Me Die) are available for pre-order on Audible! My first audiobook series. This is thrilling and terrifying.

Award: I’ve won 2nd place in the 2016 Jim Baen Memorial Short Story Award Contest! The thing I really like about this contest (besides that it is free to enter) is the fact that it is a blind read. It is the story that won. Not the author’s rep or connections.

Pre-Order: The Usual Path to Publication edited by Shannon Page. My own essay, "No One True Way," has three different examples of how I sold something to be published.

Release: Happy book release day to me. The Karen Wilson Chronicles ebook and paperback omnibus! It has all four KWC novels, every Kendrick story written (even the ones not in the four KWC books), and a new John Corso story. It’s pretty hefty and can be used as a bludgeoning instrument. I am so proud of this book!

Release: Speaking of the Karen Wilson Chronicles omnibus, it is also available in a Signed, Limited Edition Hardback form. We will only sell these at conventions (like Norwescon) and on the AIP website. Once they are gone, they are gone.

Reminder: I will be at Norwescon this weekend and here is my schedule. Hope to see you there.

    My Google-fu has failed me.

    I am looking for the creator of this image of a destroyed Seattle.

    I cannot find out anything about it. On the bottom right corner, it has the word "Scratched" and a second word I cannot make out. I think the second might be "technology" but I'm not sure.

    I want to compliment the creator on the image.

    I want to buy a hard copy print of it.

    Let's make it a contest: The first person who can get me in contact with the creator/owner of this image, will win a copy of my post apocalyptic anthology GRANTS PASS and my sincere appreciation.

    NOTE: The creator has been found. It is Scott Shepard, a Seattle local. Thank you.

    I’m pleased to announce the details of the fourth annual Apex Halloween Short Story Contest!

    Contest rules in a nutshell:
    Theme: Urban myths with an alien origin
    Deadline: October 15th, 2009
    Word Count: Maximum of 2,500 words
    Submission Address:

    The prize this year is publication in Jennifer Brozek’s upcoming Apex anthology Close Encounters of the Urban Kind. First place gets publication and payment of 8 cents per word for their story (and a copy of the antho). Second place gets publication and payment of 5 cents per word for their story (and a copy of the antho). Jennifer’s anthology is invite only, so these will be the only open spots available to non-solicited manuscripts.

    The Apex editing team will choose the ten to fifteen best stories and submit those to Jennifer. Jennifer will proceed to pick the winner and runner-up for publication. Her anthology can be described as “combining the dark allure of urban legends with the high stakes of alien encounters”.

    Best of luck!

    Like all good authors and editors, I want to get the word out for my upcoming anthology GRANTS PASS. As such, I am having a contest to help this. If you spread the word about the GRANTS PASS anthology and its pre-order link between the dates of May 29, 2009 and June 6, 2009 and then link your post to THIS contest journal entry (, your name will be tossed into the hat for a prize. This prize includes stuff from Grants Pass city, a letter from Kayley Allard and other neat stuff. Please note that if you win this prize you will need to email me your postal address.

    The GRANTS PASS anthology is available for pre-order from Morrigan Books at

    The apocalypse has arrived. Humanity was decimated by bio-terrorism; three engineered plagues were let loose on the world. Barely anyone has survived. Just a year before the collapse, Grants Pass, Oregon, USA, was publicly labeled as a place of sanctuary in a whimsical online, “what if” post. Now, it has become one of the last known refuges, and the hope, of mankind. Would you go to Grants Pass based on the words of someone you’ve never met?

    “Each story from Grants Pass draws from the same well of emotions and horror as Stephen King’s THE STAND and Robert McCammon’s SWAN SONG. It’ll take you to the darker sides of humanity and yet, at the end of the road, Grants Pass will show you the hope and possibilities of the human spirit.”
    – Jason Sizemore, Stoker-nominated editor-in-chief of Apex Book Company and author of Irredeemable.

    “This is a unique anthology that deserves attention. You’ll hear echoes of Stephen King’s The Stand, David Brin’s The Postman and even Cormac McCarthy’s The Road as you read this series of stories about the survivors of a great plague. The stories are varied and lively, and their talented authors lead you (sometimes kicking and screaming) toward sanctuary. If you’re reading these words now, dive into these pages, and meet the survivors at Grants Pass.”
    — Patrick Swenson, editor of Talebones Magazine.

    “Grants Pass is a remarkable, disturbing, and worthwhile read, and one that is likely to stay with the reader for some time to come. I’m predicting that this anthology will be up for a swag of awards come the next round of Aurealis, Ditmar and Australian Shadows nominations.”
    – Chuck McKenzie, HorrorScope
