"In-Futura" is now officially complete!


Almost two full years in the making, "In-Futura ( In the future... )", my collection of dystopian science fiction short stories that each ask 'What if', is finally, officially, complete!

I began my journey writing an early version of "Don't Blame the Weatherman" in an evening Creative Writing class (which, consequently, was my very first short story, period!) and ended it with the gruelling, yet worthwhile writing of "The Monarchs". In between I learned a thing or two about writing, I explored a variety of different genres and narrative styles, and most importantly, I had a ton of fun exploring and bringing to life some of the most interesting story ideas that have been floating around in my head.

Below, I proudly present the full line-up, the fifteen stories, arranged into three themed parts, that are part of the collection:






Out of the fifteen stories in the collection, I've made two available to download for free: "The Lost Memory" and "Modus Operandi". I'll be working over the next while to submit the remaining thirteen stories for publication in various science fiction related print and online markets - so cross your fingers and wish me luck on that front.

What's next for me, you might ask? Stay tuned, dear reader. For although I may have conquered the art of the short story, there is one more beast that I've yet to tame: the novel. I'll soon be announcing an exciting new project that I'll be working on for the next year... a science-fiction and fantasy novel!
