The Eternal Cycle/Collected Stories and Poems
April 07, 2017
132
This collection of stories and poems is a combination of fun and harrowing stories about humans that we can relate to--with satisfying or scary endings that make you think and possibly cringe; they include science fiction, fantasy, and real life horror stories that are on our doorsteps now.... I enjoyed the striking ideas and beautiful imagery in the poetry also. Highly recommended.

Cold New Planet, originally published in the anthology, Science Fiction Consortium, is available on Kindle. You can pre-order it here: Cold New Planet

What mysteries will the colonists–and the consortium backing them–uncover on this slowly thawing planet? Are the colonists alone? This planet is supposed to be theirs; their backers, who had their own agenda, had paid enough money to ensure that. And they were a long way from Earth via that alien point-to-point ship. What lies under the snow and ice? How long will it take to find out? And where did all these humans–and aliens–come from? From landing on a barren, icy wasteland, now it’s almost like gridlock back on Earth.
