New Short Story Out: Planet Ugh

Just published a new short story, bringing the count to seven shorts published in the past year. Planet Ugh was inspired by Youtube comments. The aliens have arrived, and Earth makes first contact. Do they think we’re ready to meet the rest of the universe? Our representative makes his case, but the conversation isn’t going well…

New Free Scifi Wallpaper

Creating in different ways helps me keep things fresh while I write Mesh. Worked on this since last night, channeling one of my favorite dystopian artists, Simon Stålenhag. Now we have a new addition to the Free Stuff area. Hope you enjoy ‘A Girl and Her Robot.’
