Pre-order the action thriller anthology Lethal Impact from Dragon Soul Press. Featuring one of my dystopian stories, "Don't cough in Marshpunk Territory". Set in flooded out NYC, this pulp tale is a survivalist action thriller, and part of a larger eco-dystopian world. You can read the original story, "How the Dun-in Man Got His Name" in Helios Quarterly's Best of Anthology, which dropped this summer. A novel-length work set in this world is in progress. Synopsis: Two outlay scouts fight their way through a flooded NYC wasteland. "Scraped by a marshpunk’s rusty pike, Nate wrapped his wrist and his forearm with the bandage the Dun-in Man had given him. Dried blood spotted the bandage like a cock-eyed face, and Nate had already begun to fret about the fever that would come later that night. Bacteria, homegrown in what had been Manhattan, would blossom." Pre-order link: https://books2read.com/DSPLI
