Circus: Fantasy Under the Big Top

So finally I turned in the manuscript for my reprint anthology, CIRCUS: FANTASY UNDER THE BIG TOP. Many thanks to everyone who suggested reprints — your help certainly pointed me to a number of stories I wouldn’t have seen otherwise, and the book is better for it. Now, for the good stuff, cover and table of contents:

    I’ll be sure to pre-order my copy on book depository. :)
    A quick question: A lot of the links to your published short stories are dead. Have you published a collection of your own short stories?

    That is fantastic! I’m looking forward to it.
