Spaceman Sid in “Mirages and Speculations”

Mirages and Speculations coverI’m delighted to announce my latest release – a fun, pulp-fiction style short which is included in Mirages and Speculations, a collection of desert-themed fantasy and science fiction.

Over-the-top heroes and improbable adventures are at the core of the pulp fiction novels, action comics, and Saturday afternoon creature-features I grew up with. So when a red-rock, alien landscape on the cover of a favorite comic book caught my eye, I let my imagination wander, and my own inner fiveyear-old out to play.

Spaceman Sid and the Tentacles of Peace is an homage to the ‘Spaceman Spiff’ cartoon character from Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes comics. I hope you have fun with it!


Mirages and Speculations is distributed through BundleRabbit, and also available at Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and the iBooks store.
