The Best of Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Year Seven is out now and includes my story, “Sun, Stone, Spear.” This is my neolithic fantasy, filled with standing stones and encounters with demons and gods.

It’s been a long couple of weeks, finishing up the revisions to Bannerless, recovering after the month of travel, hanging out with visiting friends, and putting my brain back together. Trying to clean the place up some, you know? Also, catching up on 50th anniversary Star Trek showings. Been a long time since I saw “The Trouble with Tribbles” and I’d forgotten just how hysterically funny it is. Oh my goodness. Tribbles clinging to walls will never not be funny.
