TINY TIME MACHINE 2 published by Amazing Stories

Amazing Stories has just published TINY TIME MACHINE 2: RETURN OF THE FATHER.

Alternate Cover for TINY TIME MACHINE

The original cover for Tiny Time Machine is beautiful, but it suggests the book is target for middle grade readers when in fact the book is meant for young adult and adult. Amazing Stories has therefore published an additional edition, one with a cover meant for the YA market.

Video with Book Excerpt for Super Relaxed Fantasy Club

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.
