Well, it finally happened: McSweeney’s has published a piece of mine, Critical Theories Of The Pumpkin Spice Latte! I’ve been a fan of McSweeney’s (and Dave Eggers and 826 Valencia), for a really long time so I’m very proud to have them feature my work! It’s great to be in the company of so many brilliant writers, comedians, and satirists!

I just received word that my story, The Singularity is in Beta, won an honorable mention in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest for the 1st quarter of 2020. Not a win, but it’s something! Congratulations to all the other honorable mentions, and to the winners of course! I can’t wait to read your sci-fi in the upcoming anthology.

Myself and another finalist for the 48th New Millennium Fiction Award will be doing a reading at Alley Cat Bookstore & Gallery in the Mission on Thursday, March 5th, at 7 pm, where we’ll both be reading excerpts from our stories. If anyone would like to come and support us or this great space, Alley Cat’s address is 3036 24th St., San Francisco, CA 94110, just two blocks from BART. Hope to see you there!
