Some new short fiction

Hello Everyone,

It's been a little while since I've posted.

I've finally picked up the manuscript for the 3rd Cull Chronicles book (working title, "The True Threat") back up and started prodding it onward; still a ways to go, however.

I really enjoyed this and see why it garnered so much award attention. It explores life on a truly alien world and how first contact with another civilization might cause unexpected reactions in our own. Good start to the series. Not entirely without ...more
