Warnings: This book contains 110 stories of 300 words or less each. 

 Book Blurb: 

 IM * PACT (noun) 

1) One object colliding with another 

2) An impinging of something upon something else 

3) An influence or effect on something or someone 

4) The force of a new idea, concept, technology or ideology 

Four definitions to inspire writers around the world, and an unlimited number of possible stories to tell, but only 110 made the final cut. 

 A difficult choice to be made. An object hurtling recklessly through space. A new invention that will change the world. So many things can impact a life, a society, or a planet. 

 Impact features 300 word speculative fiction ficlets from across the queer spectrum from the minds of the writers of Queer Sci Fi. 


Welcome to Impact

My story Jealousy (Or Why Joe Can Never Keep a Lover) is included!

Series Blurb: 

 It’s hard to tell a story in just 300 words. Each year we ask writers to take the challenge, turning in stories across the queer spectrum. The rules are simple. Write a complete sci fi, fantasy, paranormal or horror story, include LGBTIQA characters, and do it all with just 300 carefully chosen words.
