‘Popcorn Bargain’ Now Live

I’m excited to announce that my flash fiction ‘Popcorn Bargain’ mentioned in the last post is now live as an audio story on 600 Second Saga and can be enjoyed in iTunes and other fine podcasting venues, as well. A complete list of links is here:

The story is ably ready by Mariah Avix of  600 Second Saga. It’s a short listen so please enjoy, share, and subscribe on iTunes.

Popcorn Bargain on 600 Second Saga

Jenna had just curled up with a bag of hot popcorn when the nightmare appeared…

I’m pleased to announce that a flash fiction story of mine has been selected to be read by Mariah Avix of 600 Second Saga and will go live this Friday. So be sure to check out the list of links below to listen to the story as soon as it goes live, this Friday, October 21st, at 4 PM PST / 7 PM EST.

The story is called ‘Popcorn Bargain’ and is a short, (hopefully) amusing piece with a theme quite fitting for Halloween. At less than a thousand words, it’s quite short too and as the title of the podcast suggests, listening takes less than ten minutes. I’ve heard a preview of Mariah’s reading too, and it’s great. So please give a listen when it launches!

Quanta Rabbit

I’m pleased to announce my flash fiction piece Quanta Rabbit was a finalist in Scientific American’s quantum shorts competition, recently concluded.

The story is accessible here, and other finalists can be viewed here. Congratulations to Liam Hogan, who’s “Ana” took home the $1500 prize.

While it’s disappointing not to win, I was pleased to have been a finalist and look forward to next year’s competition.

The stories were required to feature a genuine aspect of quantum physics in some way, and mine uses superposition at extreme temperatures to suggest its resolution.

The entire story is ~950 words.
