Publication Shoutout: Phantoms From the Sky

The stars beckon. Cosmic discoveries await. The truth is closer than you think.

I'm super excited to share that my short story, "The Artemis Survey," will appear in the upcoming Phantoms From the Sky anthology from Rogue Owl Press! The anthology will be funded through Kickstarter and launches on March 27th!

The Artemis Survey

"The Artemis Survey" is a short story about the ISV Buchanan, a generation ship that left Earth nearly 100 years ago, and is in search of a habitable planet to colonize. Upon reaching their destination, the responsibility of determining if the planet is habitable falls to three crew members who have a brief window of time to explore and report back. As they investigate the planet, the survey team discovers the planet is filled with dangers and human's aren't the only form of life here. As the mission becomes increasingly dangerous and crew member's ulterior motives come to light, will the Buchanan settle on this strange alien world or move on to the next start system - so far away that none of the crew members will live to see it?

Phantoms From the Sky

The truth is closer than you think. Brace yourself for a collection of short fiction that will challenge your perceptions and leave you questioning the boundaries of our reality.
