Coming right up! Stories that have been accepted for publication, but have not yet appeared:
The deathstalker scorpion lives up to its name: vicious, deadly, and predatory. A deathstalker finds its way accidentally to Dr. Lakshmi Malieux’s laboratory at her leper colony in Bombay. An unwitting lab assistant experiments on the arachnid with the twin lasers that have given Lakshmi’s “Friends” their sapience and enhanced physical abilities, with disastrous results.
An origin story from A Midsummer Night’s Steampunk 2: Perils of Pauline of a vicious antagonist, with all the charm, romance, grit, and action of A Midsummer Night’s Steampunk.
