“Dreams in Dust” Now Available

My story “Dreams in Dust” in now available for purchase in the December issue of Lightspeed Magazine.  I very proud of this story, and the novel I was working on during NaNoWriMo is set in the same universe.  Here’s a story teaser to pique your interest:

           The arrival of the dust-covered girl caught Keraf by surprise. The girl’s slender face, sun-beaten to a deep brown, blended seamlessly into the cloth wrapped around her head. She couldn’t have been more than seventeen, but she wielded her rifle with ease.
          Keraf didn’t even try for his own rifle, slung over his shoulder. Shooting her would be a waste of his last bullet because she didn’t appear to have a canteen.

If you decide not to buy the December issue (hint: wrong choice), you can wait until December 18th, when “Dreams in Dust” will be available for free reading on the Lightspeed website.  But why wait?  Purchase a copy today so you can enjoy my story, along with stories by Ken Liu, Yoon Ha Lee, Sarah Langan, Kelly Link and more.

    Just read this story in Lightspeed last night and adored it. I love when shorter-short stories can create such rich characters and atmosphere. Great story.
