Art by Charles Bernard“You know those movies where the aliens come to Earth, and they… I dunno, they try to steal our natural resources, or create a nuclear winter so they can turn the Earth into slag, or they melt the polar ice caps and New York is under fathoms of water, or they clone us for slaves, or create terrifying bioweapons and wipe us all out and use our cities for farmland, or…all that stuff? It was nothing like that.”

Part District 9, part Lost in Translation, part Stranger in a Strange Land, Triptych is a poignant, character-driven science fiction story about tolerance, love and loss.

Named one of Publishers Weekly’s Best Books of 2011, and listed in The Advocate’s Best Overlooked Books of 2011 article. Read the short story that inspired the book for free: (Back) (Silverthought Press, March 2008)

See what readers are saying about “The Dark Side Of The Glass

Mary was a fan of the vampire drama “City By Night”, until she woke up in the show. At first, Mary is thrilled – who wouldn’t want to live alongside their favorite TV characters? The charm fades when Mary realizes that the extras still don’t speak, the matte paintings don’t become real, and all the infuriating flaws in the writing are just amplified when you have to try to interact with the shallow characters. And then, of course, the lead character Leondre DuNoir falls for her! Leondre’s his admiration comes with its own set of problems: Antonio, Leondre’s psychotic stalker, has a habit of killing off the girls-of-the-week. To stay alive, Mary has to find a way home from a world that, pardon the pun, totally sucks.

A loving satire of vampire-detective tropes, fandom, and Mary Sues.

ON HIS BIRTHDAY, REGINALD GOT
 FutureCon Publications in support of Epilepsy Toronto
January 2012
Amazon Kindle

On His Birthday, Reginald Got - CoverOn his 257th birthday, Reginald got stuck in a bank.

Well, yes alright, it was a bank robbery, but you know, it sounded better to say “in a bank.”  Less horrifically embarrassing.

Imagine, someone like Reginald Schilverspün (and he’s heard all the jokes about being born with things his mouth, and yes, they’re all very clever but, you know, after 257 years the joke gets rather tired don’t you think? So he’ll thank you very much for not telling it. Besides, he wasn’t.) Imagine! Reginald getting stuck in the middle of a bank robbery on his birthday.

Really now; only Reginald.
