New Story Reprint: "Making Waves"

This month on Curious Fictions, I'm reprinting my Lovecraftian WWII submarine story from 2014 which will probably never be adapted to film or TV but hey, a guy can dream. The story is FREE to my subscribers, or just $1 if you're not!

What About Bob Patreon?

So I still have no idea what to offer "patrons" for a buck or two every month, since I'm already doing reprints and ramblings over on Curious Fictions... but it turns out you can make public polls on Patreon! If you're interested in seeing more of my works in progress or other "special features," click on over and give me a piece of your mind.

What's Next?

This is very short notice and specific to PDX, but with the help of some fabulous volunteers, I've managed to organize another SFWA-sponsored Portland Publishing Happy Hour event next Thursday night, June 27th!

We're on the west side of town this time, at a bar co-owned by M.K. Hobson (Nebula-nominated local author & all-around cool person), and it's just $10 to attend! Please consider stopping by if you're in the neighborhood, and tell all your Portlandish friends.

And Speaking of SFWA...

Did you know that the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) give away tens of thousands of dollars every year to other organizations? It's true! In 2019, the Givers Fund awarded $46,837 to 23 different organizations and programs. If you know of a group doing something to to promote, advance, and support genre writing, please encourage them to apply for a SFWA grant! Deadline is October 1st.

(ObDisclosure: though I am the current Secretary of SFWA, I have no influence over the grant committee's decisions.)
