#FlashFiction "All In for One Last Sin" by Tom Tinney (Cyberpunk Dystopian)

The cracked lines of marred silkscreened writing ran across the green felt on the table. It was worn and frayed, with lighter patches where 100 years of spilled drinks and tossed chips had damaged the surface. If Ace could read 22rd century Chianglish, he would’ve seen that his current hand...Read More »

"Pest Removal" by Tom Tinney included in "Visions II: Moons of Saturn" #SciFi #ShortStory


This was a fun project and it was great working with Carol Fix (the publisher and editor) on the anthology contribution. The theme as broad, but allowed me to play. The anthology includes work by a number of up and coming SciFi authors (and some old hats) and I’m proud...Read More »

#RecommendedRead "The Master's War' by Mick Farrell #scifi #military #trooper . A great take on Humanity in the big picture.

#RecommendedRead "The Ginger Star" by Leigh Bracket #SciFi #Fantasy

I had searched for this book for a LONG time. I read in back in my Air Force days, along with the rest of the series (Hounds of Skaith and Reavers of Skaith). I loaned the books to someone and never got them back. Over the years, I remembered...Read More »

The author explores the depths of commitment we...Read More »

5 Star Review of "Secrets of Excalibur" by Sahara Foley (@saharaFoley) #RecommendedRead

A great...Read More »
