lost in a vast universe: Between the Branches of the Nine

lost teddybearTable of contents has been announced for the forthcoming anthology Playground of Lost Toys. Turns out my Norse neo-myth sword-battle tale “Between the Branches of the Nine” will be rounding out a most excellent lineup of stories by talented authors, despite (because of?) its wild speculation about what it means to be the playthings of uncaring gods, and just how vast a space might exist between the great branches of the Yddgrasil tree that shapes the cosmos.

More about lost toys and abandoned playthings in the fall closer to the book’s release.

The table of contents has been revealed for the next Tesseracts anthology, #19. Happy to say this one includes my short bit of happiness and light, “A Week in the Superlife.”

Very pleased with this piece, as it has very little (if any) death and destruction.  Sometimes the world collapses at the personal level, and all there is left to do after a day saving people is head to your local dive bar and sing Billie Holiday karaoke.
