You ever look for a story and you immediately pick it up because of the title. Well, sometimes, short fiction is like that as well. You see an awesome, hilarious title like, The Legend of Wolfgang Robotkiller, and you wonder what the heck that story is it about. Obviously it involves robots and killing robots, but what else? A lot, actually.

My first novella, City of Kaiju, is finally out! Available through Amazon and Books2Read. You can see a preview of the very first chapter here. Help support a fresh new author with a fantastic read this spring season.

Fiction Friday is a series where I talk about what I’ve been reading. Short Stories (and sometimes Novellas) are featured as in-between posts and the first Friday of the month will feature a new novel review. Today, I review The Flowering by Soyeon Jeong.

Today’s short story is The Flowering by Soyeon Jeong, as featured in Clarkesworld. You can find it here. This is an interesting dystopian tale that feels a beautiful as such a story could be. Less doom and gloom and more powerful revolution. So let’s get into this. Continue reading “Fiction Friday: The Flowering”

Fiction Friday: The Deepest Notes of the Harp and Drum (Beneath Ceaseless Skies #269)

My first novella, City of Kaiju, is available for pre-order. Available through Amazon and Books2Read. You can see a preview of the very first chapter here. Check it out when it launches, February 12th, 2019.

Beneath Ceaseless Skies Issue #269 by [Lingen, Marissa, Taylor, Jordan]

Imagine murdering someone you loved. The guilt of having it stay with you that you begin hallucinating for days until you repent your sin. That’s the theme of today’s story.

Today, we’re talking about The Deepest Notes of the Harp and Drum by Marissa Lingen, as featured in Beneath Ceaseless Skies. You can find it here (and buy here). This is a fairly straightforward tale that reminds what those who have committed horrible atrocities have to live with on a regular basis. So let’s see what’s in store?

I’m gonna try to experiment a bit with how I review things, so I’m adding a score system. I’ll point out what I like and what I didn’t like and average it out to give one final score.
