Speculative Fiction Showcase

Someday I might become so important and jaded that indie spotlights on my work won’t matter. That day is not here.

I had a little squee today when I came home to find Synth#1 was featured on Speculative Fiction Showcase, including an excerpt from my story “The Object of Your Desire Comes Closer.” Squeee!

Strange feeling reading your own work in a new format. Check it out for free and see if you’re intrigued. Also, bonus points to the first person who figures out the source of the title. It’s not from a book, website, or film. It came to me on paper, and it is very common. You may have gotten it, too. I cribbed it word for word.
