- My short science fiction story, "The Weber Defense" has been picked up by "Kzine magazine". It is a kindle-only magazine, designed specifically for Kindle users. At this time the story is scheduled to appear in the January 2016 issue, which will be available on Amazon. I have been informed it might appear an issue sooner or later, depending on amount of content. Whenever it does appear, I will note it here.
