Publishing news!

Seems appropriate to post this now, following on yesterday's submarine conversation. My short story "Silent Hunter," in the anthology Sha'daa: Last Call, is now available from the publisher! This is a companion book to Sha'daa: Tales of the Apocalypse, to which I had also contributed a story. The Sha'daa is a shared world anthology about a fictional apocalypse that takes place once every 10,000 years. Invited writers chose from a set of story lines and then ran with them. When I saw one of the available stories was about a submarine, you can imagine how fast I snapped that up! I wrote a story about an inexperienced lieutenant and his experimental sub's showdown with a horrific leviathan of the deep. "Silent Hunter" ended up being more fun to write than just about any other short I've ever written.

They did a great job on this book. Each story even got an illustration. Here's the one for my story. Quite cool.

It's not available from Amazon yet, but as soon as the release is expanded, I'll post the news here.


  1. Congratulations! A nice Christmas present. :-)

  2. That is so neat! Congratulations :D

  3. Thanks! I've been working mostly on novel instead of shorts, so it's nice to see this one out in print, and just in time for the holidays!
