I'm happy to say that my paranoid science fiction story The Cameras of Cedar Lane was picked up by Leading Edge magazine, a long running and respected sci-fi mag, and the issue it's in is now available. The print edition and Kindle edition are both available on Amazon.

It's got a kind of modern Twilight Zone vibe to it. Think some of you will enjoy it. Cheers!

Just grabbed it for my Kindle, and then realized my tablet is dead...so, hopefully it'll be done charging in a few hours, and I'll check it out.

I was pleased to find that not only did I make the cover, mine is the lead story and it's accompanied by several illustrations which I did not know were being commissioned for it. Pretty cool.

Got my print copies in the mail the other day and this is less a "magazine" and more like a periodical book. Squarebound softcover, about 130 pages, same size as a traditional softcover, fairly hefty with a lot of content.

Leading Edge is no Asimov's or Analog, but they've been around for close to 35 years and put a lot of work into refining my story -- we went through several rounds of rewrites on it to make it as good as it can be -- so I'm pretty happy with all this.

This is awesome. Fantastic and although it might not be an Asimov's or Analog, it is no swept under the carpet accomplishment, man. A huge congrats!

It's the greatest story featuring someone named Arnold I've ever written.
