I am very pleased to announce that Cosmic Horror Monthly is going to publish my sci-fi horror story, “What Mel Knows.” Here’s a description of the story:

A lab accident leaves a physicist’s conscious mind jumping further and further into the future while her body remains in the present. But what happens when her mind reaches a future without her in it?

This is my very first short story and my first publication (aside from research papers). I am a physics major and drew on that background while writing it. Two side characters, Seth and Laura, are even named after my real lab partners from my time at Louisiana State University.

I had a lot of fun writing this somewhat sadistic story and can’t wait for it to appear in Cosmic Horror Monthly! It’s scheduled for sometime between July and December of this year. I’ll provide updates once I know the exact issue.
