The best of 2010

December 31st, 2010

I’ve published a lot of stories this year, as you can see from my bibliography. They’re all, for one reason or another, personal favourites, though some I might have thought a little less of have proven more engaging for some readers. I’ve tried a variety of styles and genres this year, from hard sci-fi to humourous horror and been published both in print and online.

Anyway, this selection is my favourite five online stories from the year:

Fledgling (The New Flesh)

Sunset Photographer (365Tomorrows)

Jacob’s Naked Aquarium (Bewildering Stories – selected for best of quarterly review, 3rd quarter 2010)

Zemogorgon (Pulp Metal Magazine)

Zombie-Eyed Girl (Flashes in The Dark)

___________________________________

Overall, it’s been a good year, a banner year in fact – I’ve published more this year than all previous years combined – exceeding my own ridiculous goal (lesson: aim high). I still have so much more to work on and a set of new goals that will push me and challenge me – I will publish far fewer pieces, but look for longer stories, and different approaches.

See you in 2011.

    okay,
    I agree with all these but would have to add

    The Newly-Oiled Gate ~ This touched my soul
    I puncture him all over ~ AMAZING AMAZING pov from twisted protag soul
    Stone Goddess~ Quite possibly one of my fav short sci fi’s of all time
    And the Katie’s window~ (is that what it was called? The one at flashes in the dark I wanted you to write more of)

    And the one we edited, can’t recall the name, the one with the shadow… that has potential for extreme amazingness.
