So this is it: my first official 'publishing credit'. This is an anthology of science fiction short stories that won the 2006 Illuminations writing contest (I was # 1), and my story is the very first one in the book. They've got a thing on me called an 'author's bio' and everything, so, yeah, it's a tad exciting.
Go to Amazon, order a copy. If you love it, rate it and review it. If you hate it, be sure to let me know so that any small spark of a dream that I have can be ground to ashes beneath the heel of the boot of cruelty that you wear on your leg of superiority.
