UNFIT/PEACECON UPDATE


Good news fans of the time-honored physical book experience. Unfit Magazine Vol. 3, with my story “PeaceCon,” featuring my futuristic lucha libre character Steelsnake, is available in paperback for $3.99.

What the hell, here's a link to the site where you can buy it. Facebook seems to think that the site violates their community standards, so they won't allow links to it.

This is similar to what they were doing to La Bloga, refused allows links to it for years, then it mysteriously and abruptly stopped with out an apology or explanation as to what the infernal violations were.

Violating community standards is the story of my life.

Better include a link to the link where you can buy Unfit Magazine Vol. 3, just in case.

Guess Unfit really is “Fiction that isn't fit for 'Them.'”

Or as editor Daniel Scott White said, “I named it Unfit for a reason.”

“GUERRILLA MURAL” BUNDLED


It wasn't long ago that I didn't know what an ebook bundle was, now my work is appearing in them without warning. For example: My story “Guerrilla Mural of a Siren's Song” part of Marty Halpern's anthology Alien Contact, is part of the $15 or more deal of Humble's Science Fiction Bundle!

If you didn't know, “Guerrilla Mural” is the story I exploded in my first novel Cortez on Jupiter.

Here's a preview:

I take the stick like an Aztec priest wielding a flint knife, or that cop swinging his baton on that cool, starless night years ago in L.A.--crushing the buckle from my gas mask into my skull, leaving a cute little scar on my scalp that I shaved my head for months to show off.

You also get other volumes of science fiction, and there's only a few days left—do it now!

CHICANONAUTICA FINDS STEELSNAKE AMOK AGAIN




A new story about my postcyberpunk luchador Steelsnake is out, and you can read all about it in Chicanonautica, over at La Bloga.

It extrapolates on lucha libre:



And the peace business:


And war:


It gets violent:
