For the Super Relaxed Fantasy Club (SRFC) in the UK, I recorded a short video that includes an excerpt from the upcoming novella TINY TIME MACHINE. I also talk extremely briefly about a few favorite SF books. I think the club's normal pattern is to have folks stop in for a drink and a chat, but that format has obviously been disrupted.

Amazing Stories has just bought "Tiny Time Machine," a 33,000-word novella. The plan is not that it be published in the magazine, but as a stand-alone, heavily illustrated book, possibly as soon as later this year. The book will be designed for the Young Adult market.
"Tiny Time Machine": All life on Earth will die of thirst unless a couple of loners running from the cops can use a portable time machine to stop a secret project.
