Sea, Swallow Me has just been announced as a finalist in the Sci-Fi/ Fantasy/ Horror category for the Lambda Literary Awards. I feel honored to be nomimated along with such stiff competition:
- The Archer’s Heart, Astrid Amara, Blind Eye Books
- The Magician and the Fool, Barth Anderson, Bantam Del Rey
- Wilde Stories 2008, Steve Berman, Lethe Press
- Sea, Swallow Me and Other Stories, Craig Gidney, Lethe Press

Sea, Swallow Me was nominated for a Lambda Literary Award (“Lammie”) in the gay debut fiction category. It faces some tough competition, but it’s an honor to be nominated at all, first time out of the gate.
Bookspot Central, where I occasionally post book reviews, is running a Sea, Swallow Me contest. Information about the contest is here.
Lethe Press has made available a free download of my story, “Circus Boy Without A Safety Net” from my collection, Sea, Swallow Me for the month of December (and 1/2 of November). You may read the story in its entirety here; just click the Free Gay Story sample. If you like what you read, consider buying the whole collection.
Years ago, I was born on this day.
Now, my fiction, bound in a book, is born. Welcome Sea, Swallow Me into the world!
This what the cover of Sea, Swallow Me will look like.
