"Talk To Us," my short story about the evolution of octopus society on an almost-post-human Earth, was published in Suction Cup Dreams: An Octopus Anthology (Obsolescent Press, 2013).

"Incoming" is flash fiction about three giant squid who are just as ambitious and reckless as young adults of any other species.

I've also completed a novel for young readers called Heart Set Free. It's the story of a girl and her squid. Here is a reference to the very early genesis of the idea, here is a silly drawing, and here is an excerpt.

And then I've got about seventy-hundred and twelve-teen other partially drafted short stories and novels. Here's a summary and an excerpt of one called The Sky Mother's Children.
