Reading 5X5 x2: Duets
Out now from Verdage Press! I have five stories in this wonderful collection. To the blurb:
How do authors' voices change when they collaborate?
A round-robin of great science fiction and fantasy stories: five authors each collaborating with each of the others and writing solo. Epic duels both human and divine, alien spaceships, a train full of sacrifices barreling straight toward a god’s seat of power, and much, much more.
This one was a lot of fun, and includes my favorite story to date, Sudden Oak Death. You really ought to check it out.

I work up and down the stack, generally from the web server on back. These days I'm mostly working with TypeScript and Ruby applications, served via Google Cloud Platform. During downtime I enjoy producing better tooling, improving CI setups, and keeping up with emerging tech.
