Orphans appears in Nature Futures.

A story about the people that society has all but left behind.

EACH SEPARATE STAR

Each Separate Star is in the September/October double issue of Analog.

A network of interlinked telescopes around the world tracks all the debris that orbits the Earth.

HUNT

One of my favorite flash fiction pieces, Hunt appears in Stupefying Stories.

You're hunting an alien animal, have chased it into a dead end, and then you realize that, in actuality, it lured you there.

Hunt is story #21 of The Odin Chronicles, an anthology coming out this fall. Echoing The Martian Chronicles, the anthology takes place entirely on the mining colony of Odin III. Eight terrific writers joined forces to pen 30 interwoven stories about life on Odin.


RETROCAUSALITY

Retrocausality is in the July/August double issue of Asimov's Science Fiction.

A young woman is contacted by her old physics professor to catch up over lunch.

But she is absolutely unprepared for what "catching up" actually means.
