My science fiction astralmancer story “Sharnathium” was published a couple of days ago, and I’m already seeing posts that warm my heart. Would you give up divine power in the astral for one moment of corporeal pleasure? FREE TO READ for a limited time at Galaxy’s Edge magazine!
“IT IS GORGEOUS!! Your words paint beauty. Your words bring up the symphonies found in color and light. Damn good writing.”–C.L.
“Wow! What a story. A full exploration of all the facets of passion, from gods’ to photons’, and everything in between.”–C.W.
“I find your story ABSOLUTELY beautiful.”–Lezli Robyn, Editor, Galaxy’s Edge magazine
“Gripping story.”–Tangent Online
In the magazine’s introduction, Lezli Robyn wrote: “Wulf Moon’s “Sharnathium” explores what an astralmancer god would risk to experience corporeal pleasure just one more time. Despite a completely alien voice and transcendent setting, the protagonist of the story is so completely relatable, and the consequences of his actions transport us to a surreal conclusion that no one could have ever imagined possible.”
There you have it, and it’s a shorter read. Check it out! And if you’re recommending stories for awards, this one qualifies for awards eligibility for science fiction short stories published in 2022. I hope you’ll consider “Sharnathium.” It’s one of my best!
Here’s a present for all of you! The award-winning 24-hour story I wrote at Writers of the Future, published in THINGS WITH FEATHERS: STORIES OF HOPE by Third Flatiron. I was hired to do the voice-over. Free to listen, just click the link!
Here’s the review in SFCrowsnest: “‘Sophie’s Parisian Stationery & Parfumerie Magnifique’ by Wulf Moon was damn good, too. Machines have killed most humans but one bad guy left, with a shotgun, moseys into Hollywood and attacks the AI run shops and entertainment venues that are still there. All they want is to please customers. An original idea and well-handled.”
Come hear what I sweat bullets to write under the gun in Hollywood in twenty-four hours!
“Shaken, Not Stirred,” by Wulf Moon. Published April 21, 2021. Featured Story in the flagship issue of DreamForge Anvil magazine! The issue includes an article titled “Behind the Scenes: Author’s Notes” where I detail how the story was written. This was my first commissioned story for a magazine, and also my first time being the featured story. Issue 1 was the sample issue for their Kickstarter; Issue 2 is the full meal deal. I was happy to be a part of this digital launch of a new venture that DreamForge magazine took this year to survive in the aftermath of the publishing woes caused by coronavirus.
And there’s GOOD NEWS! They’re still planning the full-sized, full color print magazine they’re famous for. Look for a bundled multi-issue print version later this year! I’ll keep you posted!
This magazine is famous for its top notch stories and gorgeous original illustrations. In fact, I received TWO illustrations for my story by the talented Jane Noel! A writer can wait many years before they see a custom illustration based on their story. The only other time this has happened for me was the story “Super-Duper Moongirl and the Amazing Moon Dawdler” in Writers of the Future, Vol. 35. These illustrations are a special gift to writers when published in DreamForge. Long may they continue to share their beautiful magazine with the world!
Here’s the publisher’s comments on the story. It’s FREE to read at their Reader’s Portal, but I do hope you’ll subscribe. It’s what keeps great publishers in business to bring you great stories! Links below. Here’s the publisher’s forward to this fun galaxy jumping story that spans our universe!
