This shot was taken in the medieval Turku Castle, Finland. A group of Chinese tourists suddenly stormed the entrance as I were taking a couple of shots of the courtyard. Interesting though, this made the shot much better, as they appear to be very ghost-like, thanks to a long exposure. The visitors now became the Castle Ghosts in my photo.

Classic Science Fiction space travel generation ship computer systems

Originally published in the anthology, DESOLATE PLACES, from Hadley Rille Books (Eric T. Reynolds, Editor), this science fiction story is an example of great parts that don't quite mesh perfectly. Still, good story with a good payoff.

Classic Mother/daughter flash memoir spinster

This story is about my mother and me. It's flash memoir, not fiction, though of course all memoir is filtered through time and likely has fictional elements. It's an old story. I'm still technically a spinster, but I'm also in a committed relationship. The picture is of my mother at the age of 23. My mother loved this story. I never showed it to my father.
