Outside has been published! You can order it here. Or you can drop by my nice new blog here and drop me a comment for a chance to get a free copy! You should drop by now and again anyway to keep in touch. You can also drop by my Goodreads page. Either of those places might be good to catch me and find out what I'm doing next.

What is Outside? It's science fiction workplace romance, in which -- well, here's the summary we're using at the publisher's page: "Gamble is a research administrator and takes his job seriously, follows the rules and gets work done. With personal matters, he's far more casual, though always careful to keep a distance between work and play. When he meets Flint, the attraction is immediate, but Flint seems inexperienced and Gamble prefers to steer clear of that.

So when he heads up a new expedition, leaving Flint behind, he thinks it's the best decision for everyone. But when he returns, it's to find Flint in dire straits and himself to blame..."

Picnic Day is when the people of Boem celebrate the deserving dead with picnics in the cemeteries and flowers for the tombstones. Pustak has only undeserving dead to remember, and he stays out of cemeteries. But this Picnic Day Night there's something waiting for him in the cemetery close to home. A Tree People story, creepier than the others.
