Quantum Visions Next launches at #LosCon46

Quantum Visions Next. Volume 8 of an annual science fiction short story and poetry anthology

For the last five years, I have participated in an anthology of science fiction short stories and poetry created by editor Jude-Marie Green. The writers all used to be part of a science fiction writing critique group in the Los Angeles area. While the critique group has dissolved, Jude-Marie continues to invite us to participate in the anthology. My fellow writers are WOTF award winners, clairon graduates, or people involved in the sciences. I’m honored to be included in the project.

In previous years, Quantum Visions was printed and stapled by hand chapbook style. Each year, the annual would be launched at LosCon in Los Angeles, CA.  Many of the attendees look forward to purchasing and having all the authors sign the book at the convention.

I have sold these chapbook issues at various book tables for the last few years.  This year, our editor has decided to place the anthology on Amazon, both as an ebook and as a paperback. It looks quite professional and the stories this year are the best we’ve offered to date.  At last Quantum Visions is available to all my readers.

This year’s edition features my flash fiction, We Can Rebuild Him, and five of my illustrated scifaiku poems.

You can find the book on AMAZON
