I got published. Tales from the Perseus Arm (Amazon) My story "The Fruit of Memory" was selected for the Tales from the Perseus Arm anthology, alongside a lot of other good science fiction. So that's pretty cool.

I've just written 1900 words in story number 2 in the Memberries cycle: "The Appreciator". What is it with this sudden surge of activity? I love it! It's like waking up from a sleep of a hundred years and wiping the cobwebs off your face. Here's the Memberries story, in short: tearstone (https://www.deviantart.com/tearstone) and myself started on a cooperative writing experiment many, many years ago (8 years?) that was supposed to be called The Glass City. It was very unorganized and written in short bursts, and never did go anywhere. In it, however, we came up with the concept for Memberries: berry-like drugs that you could ingest to absorb someone else's memory. I went on

So I'm not sure I'll finish My Father. I was all excited about experimenting with poetry when suddenly a prose idea snuck up on me. It's an old idea, but what I'm doing with it excites me. I'm also seeing how smoothly I can slide through the spectrum of literature from gorn to silly-SF. Working title is "Memberries of Her", and tearstone (https://www.deviantart.com/tearstone) fans may now scream and throw their unspeakables at me. How do you find out what the next thing you need to do is? Do you just sit down and let it happen? Do you have fifteen things on the backburner and just pick up the one you're most interested in? I wonder how sane people do it. Hey, you know what?

Dropped by the ol' stomping grounds on a whim just to see what the old gang was up to. Just leaving a note to say hello. Glad to see a name change, not a strikethrough. I miss these days.
Hi! Very happy to hear from you :) I live in Los Angeles now and make video games, so that's cool. If you want to listen to me rant about things, I do that on twitter now: twitter.com/danielzklein
