Buffalo Dogs

“Buffalo Dogs” is the story that began the Amazing Conroy series, and while every story stands alone and you can jump in anywhere, it’s still the best place to start. So all the more reason to give it away!

Yesterday’s Taste

This is another Conroy and Reggie story. I wrote it for Colin Harvey. Colin was putting together an anthology for Aeon Press in Ireland and asked me to send him something. He accepted the story for the anthology less than 24 hours after I emailed it to him. Tragically, Colin died of a stroke in the summer of 2011, two and a half months before the book’s release.
This story has been nominated for the WSFS Small Press Award for 2012.

The Moment

In the summer of 2010 I had the good fortune to be on the Hugo ballot for best short story with “The Moment” (originally published in Footprints from Hadley Rille Books). It didn’t win, but my publisher was very pleased that he got to add “Hugo-nominated author” to my byline.

Mars Needs Baby Seals

I wrote “Mars Needs Baby Seals” for my publisher, Eric Reynolds, specifically for the anthology Destination: Future. It’s a silly piece, but a lot of fun.
