For thirty-three years, I tried to to get
my science fiction stories published in the science fiction magazines. Without success. I can't say they're as
good as all, but I think they're better than some, and I think some people might've enjoyed them if only they could have seen
So, right now, I'm trying something different. I'm taking a few of my most recent rejected manuscripts,
and putting them up on the Web for all to see. Here they are.
I'll be tweaking this site over the next few
I haven't yet set up an e-mail account specifically for this site. Those I've told about it already

This is all
still new to me so I hope it works. I haven't updated much because I haven't had anything to add.
I've added two more stories---my entire
2009 finished-work output.
more stories...my most recent output. Mostly I was writing in 2010 and revising in 2011.
It's been suggested that e-publishing might be the way for me to go. I'm considering
it. But I think these works may be too short for something serious.
Another two stories up...one, SF, bounced by the
major markets...and another, which wasn't SF or Internet Fan Fiction or anything I usually write, but which I've had on hand
for awhile and decided to put up.
I had a third story ready to go, but it'll have to wait until it gets rejected at least
one more time.
After a two-year
absence, I finally put up some more stories. I've had a couple of requests, believe it or not.
covers my "finished" output for the last two years. It's not that I haven't been productive. I've worked
on this or that, but for one reason or another didn't finish them. One recent attempt at a novel that stretched out
much longer than anything here, but after two versions I put it aside. Other short stories that I finished, but didn't
seem quite right enough to polish off.
I may get back to any or all of them. Plus there are new stories to write.
And I hope to be back here more often.
