First Lines

The Future Arrives

Lovers are like flash floods, car collisions, aneurysms: always a possibility but never exactly expected. A small-plane pilot for AeroFix Corp, Sam arrived in my bed via a tray of purple pansies and a convoy of trucks intent on invading the Verona Municipal Airport.


Praise for Story

“It meanders and explores, unfolding slowly, then all at once you can’t turn away.”
– “Must-Read Speculative Short Fiction: January 2020”

“…a fantastic story that breaks the molds of speculative fiction. Again, the prose is top notch, and I found myself stopping and just re-reading bits and pieces. It sings, it does, and it adds to the narrative as a whole… a story that gave me goosebumps the first time I read it and then goosebumps again when I read it now. I mean. It’s even more powerful in these days of quarantine…”

The Anthology

Playful, whimsical, or dark, but always thoughtful and tinged with the inexplicably weird, the Weird Dream Society brings together some of the most innovative creators in speculative fiction.

Proceeds from this charity anthology go to support RAICES, the nonprofit agency that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to under-served immigrant children, families, and refugees.
