Welcome to July 2015! I hope it’s going well for everyone.
I loved reading (and rereading) science fiction stories by Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke as a kid, and wanted to someday write a science fiction story that would express my admiration for their stories.
So I wrote a longish science fiction story (the length is actually referred to as a “novelette”) called “By The Numbers.”
I’m too close to my own work, so I can’t say if I succeeded in showing my admiration for Clarke and Asimov. I hope so.
The story is out this month, and available to read in full online for free, in the July 2015 issue of Crossed Genres Magazine. I hope you will click on over and read about Dr. Melaine Sharps at New Mexico Tech and a rather unusual alien species.
Dr. Sharps (the main character) just happens to have autism, and I am extremely grateful to all the people on the spectrum I’ve known over the past ten years who helped me do a realistic story about how it feels to be autistic.
While you’re over at Crossed Genres, check out the other July stories too.
Til next time, Lynn

Hello! I hope you all are having a terrific June.
I’m happy to announce that print editions of Tales from the Threshold and Cubicles, Blood, and Magic are being released this month. I got two of the first print copies, and they look great.
These print editions are important for another reason–they had to be done before new novels of mine could be published. From now on, my new releases will be in both e-book and print formats.
The sequel to Cubicles is up next in the pipeline … as well as a surprise.
Oh, and I’ve sold a science fiction short story to a respected market, and it is scheduled to be published this year. More on that once it gets closer to being available.
Also, a short story in the Dorelai Chronicles universe, A Maze of Cubicles, is available to download for free from various e-bookstores. You can click here to find a partial list of stores.

A crime short story I wrote set in the Old West, “The Price of an Outlaw,” has just been published by Over My Dead Body! The Mystery Magazine Online. I am hoping that this is only the first of many stories published about Will Bearman.

Hello! I hope you are all well. I have some publishing news to relate this week.
The 2nd edition of Soul Cages under my new pen name of Lynn Kilmore got pushed up in the publishing queue, and both the e-book and print versions have now been released. I’ve gone and updated the Soul Cages info page with the 2nd edition links. The novel is being released not only to bookstores, but also to subscription services such as Scribd and Oyster. I’m told it’ll also be going out to Google Play in a few weeks. I’ll add the Google Play link once I know what it is.
Everything under the Lynn Kilmore pen name has been released to Oyster and Scribd, so you will be able to find them there as well as at bookstores. Also, I’ve been promised that print editions of Tales from the Threshold and Cubicles, Blood, and Magic will be released later this year.
Because the trade paperback of Soul Cages got done weeks earlier than I expected, I get to announce something I’ve been looking forward to:
Parallels/Writer’s Flight (two short stories) are now available for free from various e-bookstores (click here for some of the links where you can get the e-book for free). If it isn’t priced to free at your favorite retailer, notify them of the free price at other e-bookstores and they should match it.
I hope you all have a joyous week.
