While I've been hard at work putting the finishing touches on Blood & Steam, I managed to find some time over the last few weeks to publish three short sci-fi stories. You can get the full details in the BOOKS tab above, but here's a summary and a preview of the covers:
OUT OF TIME is a piece of short (almost flash) fiction based loosely on the premise of H.G. Wells' The Time Machine. My story isn't so much about a time machine, but about the psychological and emotional effects on an old time traveler who has seen and experienced perhaps more than he should have. This one was an experiment for me, so it's a little different.
THE JUDGE is a story that takes place in a distant future where mankind has conquered interstellar travel, aging, and advanced weaponry... But we just can't seem to get rid of crime.
THE LAST HEIST is a space opera type of story with a protagonist named Ash who might remind you of other well established sci-fi antiheroes like Han Solo or Captain Malcolm Reynolds of Firefly. Perhaps a bit more edgy and modern, but all antiheroes have their quirks.
Ash's ex-partner Zed double-crossed him, stealing his money, his ship, and his girl. Now Zed's back for one last heist, but Ash knows better than to trust him this time...
