Short Stories

In this space, I will be posting several of my science fiction short stories that have not been accepted by the major fiction magazines. A current listing of my stories with brief descriptions is below. Many of these stories will be part of my History of the Future Series, which chronicles humanity’s exploration of space over the next 200 years or so.

Stand-alone stories:

The Great Silent Treatment

Why haven’t we ever heard from aliens? What if they just refuse to talk to us? Even when they show up on our doorstep?

The Wayfarers

A family in a great fleet of generation ships anticipates their arrival in a new galaxy.

High Frequency

A Wall Street trader in the near future gets more than he bargained for when his high-frequency trading AI gets carried away.

Flight Training

A young boy with superpowers begins his training and learns what it takes to be a superhero in a story that puts a realist spin on the genre.

History of the Future Series:

The Lacertan Incident

A science team exploring a distant inhabited planet attracts the unwanted attention of the natives and is forced to make a quick–and very unorthodox–getaway. Set in 2154.
