Ants on a Trestle

Crossed Genres has published Ants on a Trestle, my latest hard SF short story in their 2065 themed issue. 50 years from now we can get anywhere on the planet in a couple of hours, but we still can’t keep the Argentine Ant out of anywhere it wants to go.

Why I’m Not at BookCon

May 31st, 2015

I like conventions. I like book conventions. I love book conventions that don’t require long distance travel and hotel. But on the other hand:

BookCon is the event where storytelling and pop culture collide. Consumers and brands will experience the origin of the story in all its forms by interacting with the authors, publishers, celebrities and creators of content that influence everything we read, hear and see.
