By Invitation Only

My creepy tale "The Invitation" appeared at The WiFiles last week, the first time this story has been published even though it's been accepted for publication three times over the past three years. Unfortunately, those prior two publications folded before "The Invitation" could greet the masses, but now it's finally available, and you can read it for free right here.

In other news, my story "Sins of the Father" has been included in the latest volume of Bardic Tales & Sage Advice thanks to readers' votes. They seemed to think it was the best story in the July 2013 issue of Bards & Sages Quarterly, and who am I to argue? I'm honored, to say the least.

And in other news, my story "Memory Lane" is now available:

Herman Neville has a big problem. He's reached maximum brain capacity. Memory full. He can't take any more input, and he can't stop screaming. But that's only the beginning of his worries as people around him start forgetting who he is, and a massive government conspiracy rears its ugly head. Can Herman save his own life before it slips forever from his grasp?

Short Story - 5,000 words - Science Fiction / Humor
Originally published by Plasma Frequency Magazine
Now available from Amazon

  2. Congrats, Milo! I'm already a member of your Crew, but a Twitterless and FB-less version. I'd post a badge about the CREW if you had one.(it could be in the sidebar of those who are already a member. . .)
    I like the weekly updates on what's happening in your corner.

  15. I can only imagine how frustrating it must be to have something that was supposed to be published, and have the place go under, twice. >_< Glad that you're still getting more and more of your stories out there, though.
