Two Recent Clarendon House Books Publications

Having been extremely preoccupied recently, what with moving to South Korea and feverishly writing for some contracted deadlines, I've been slacking on updating this blog. To catch up, I'm going to combine two belated publication announcements for the same publisher: Clarendon House Books

First, my humorous story Pregenesis has been published a fourth time as part of the "Best of" series in Issue #29 of Inner Circle Writers' Group Magazine


This story was first published in "Carrier Wave: The Inner Circle Writers' Group Comedy Anthology 2018", and voted the best of the anthology.  As a winning story, it was chosen for inclusion in "Gold: The Best from Clarendon House Anthologies Volume One 2017/2018", and published a second time.
Next, it was republished in Personal Bests Journal Issue 1, and finally, in the magazine above.




Finally, my science-fiction love poem, "A Spaceman", was published in May 2021 in "Poetica # 3: The Inner Circle Writers' Group Second Poetry Anthology 2021"

Breaking Rules Europe Publishing has taken over the publication of this horror anthology from Raven & Drake Publishing, including my short story, "Funny and Sad".  The e-book version is now available: https://books2read.com/u/bze7DE
