I’ve asked the excellent artist Bradley W. Schenck, to prepare another of the fabulous certificates he creates for my Patreon patrons.

I’ve finished a 10,000-word novelette, “Stopover at Meech’s World,” and sent it to Lightspeed editor John Joseph Adams. The story revives Conn Labro and Jenore Mordene, from my 2008 stand-alone space-opera novel, Template. They now have a private space yacht that they’re hiring out for passenger charters among the Ten Thousand Worlds. I’m thinking of doing a series of adventures for them.

And in the near future, I’m going to release a new ebook and print-on-demand paperback. It’s a crime novel titled E.F.T., based on a screenplay I wrote decades ago. I’ve asked Bradley to do the cover art.
