I submitted this story to Suspense Magazine for a review. The following is this review.
Send In by Justin Lowmaster: After reading this short, I’d be afraid to send in the
clowns if Justin was around! This story was fun to read and poor Grimble the ‘three foot
gnome, almost four if you counted his pointy, yellow hat’. I’m with Jeremy; diet soda’s
the only way to go!

Enjoy Your Sci-fi and Fantasy How and Where You Want
Beginning July 4th, science fiction and fantasy fans will be given a
new place where they can discover authors and stories they’ll be able
to enjoy wherever they go. Flagship, the new e-zine by publisher
Flying Island Press, will soon be releasing these stories in formats
for the Kindle, the iPad and iPhone, and other electronic readers.
Flying Island Press also recognizes the increasing popularity of
podcasts and other forms of audio fiction. So, in addition to the
e-zine, an audio version will be available to listen to on any MP3
player. Stories they release will be available both in text and in
audio, allowing the consumer to choose their preferred version.
Zach Ricks, managing editor for Flagship, had this to say. “I wanted
to hearken back to what some have called the Golden Age of Science
Fiction.” It’s his hope that “FlagShip will be a place for
optimistic, entertaining fiction.”
Each issue will cost $1.99 for the text version or the audio version
or get both for just $2.99.
Issues will be available starting July 4th, 2010 at
My explosive eBook short story ‘Send In’ is available on Smashwords. It’s about a man named Jeremy who has a rocket launcher and must get to his mission destination safely. What is his mission? That’s what the story is all about.
