An earlier version earned an honorable mention in the .L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest.


Adventures in SciFi Publishing 318 — Paradise ICON Reading Part 1

In this podcast I read a draft opening of my novel Enemy Immortal. The openning to Enemy Immortal has changed since the podcast, but the gist of the sto1y remains the same.

Podcast blurb: "Brent decides to bring his own brand of anthology work by featuring the talents of the Paradise ICON group of 2015 during their reading. Part 1 of the reading (begins at 41:30) features authors Ransom Noble, Christopher Cornell, Stephanie Vance and Jim Meeks-Johnson. We’ll share Part 2 in episode 319."

Thunderstone in the Six Worlds Anthology.

A fanciful story about a determined viking and a determined interplanetary operative in a world where legendary magic and science converge.

An earlier version earned an honorable mention in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest.

Kiss Chronicles

Ironically, my first publication is not science fiction at all. It MAY not even be wholely fiction. You can read my cameo First Kiss story in Virgina M. Sanders Kiss Chronicles, written to help raise money to fight cancer.
