Other speculative fiction
When Jeanne first asked me to participate at her blog, I didn't think I would have much to contribute because I don't consider myself an author of paranormal stories. However, I do write a lot of speculative fiction. My first stories with most all of my publishers were spec fic:
- Operation Starseed (iUniverse) is a sci-fi novel in which a team of star-mappers discover a lost colony ship.
- Trin (Aspen Mountain Press) is set in a dystopic future where one young man longs to meet the run-gunner of his dreams.
- Persistence of Memory (Amber Allure Press), also set in a dystopic future, has one man scrambling to recover memories the government took away.
- World Enough and Time (Torquere Press), again with the dystopic future, only this time the world is on the brink of destruction.
Seriously though, I have more spec fic in my resume than most authors who also write contemporary fiction. There's a story about merrows, which are Celtic mermaids (in my case, mermen), a tale about a man who uses virtual reality to create a lover more real than he knows, and a whole series about Vic and Matt, my 'superhero' characters, whose lovemaking imbues Vic with comic book powers. The positions in which they have sex help determine which powers Vic will get. I'm finishing up a 12-part series with these characters, entitled The Positions of Love, and a paperback collection of all twelve stories should be released in December (Amber Allure Press).
