Awesome Reviews and Fan Mail on “Super-Duper Moongirl and the Amazing Moon Dawdler”!

You might have heard I wrote a story that took second place in the international talent search for speculative fiction writers known as Writers of the Future. Okay, you’re here, so I think it’s safe to assume you have. You might have also heard the story has been reprinted in the professional science fiction magazine Future Science Fiction Digest, Issue #3. You might have also heard I was hired by the same editor to produce it as a podcast (see my header “Podcasts” to listen to it for free). So what’s the news? Why am I jumping up and down on your bed at 3 a.m.? FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, you say, I’M TRYING TO SLEEP!!!

Well, what you might not have heard is that wonderful, positive reviews on this story have been coming in almost every day since it was published at the start of April, 2019.  Several reviewers have also singled it out for praise, saying this story touched them and made them cry…and then told everyone they need to read it!

Well, here’s a few highlights for your review. If you missed it, I hope you’ll read the story. I hope you’ll also consider it when year end award time comes around. It means a great deal to me, and it has touched the lives of many readers from around the world. How do I know? They’ve told me.  And I’ll share just a few with you because I am happy this sweet story I wrote about a disabled girl on the Moon and her robot life support dog is not only being read, it’s getting lots of love.

Wulf Moon’s First Appearance on a Pro Science Fiction Magazine’s Cover!

Today, it’s official. My first appearance on the cover of a professional science fiction magazine. I’m singing, “On the Cover of the Rolling Stone!”

This issue of Future Science Fiction Digest has two themes: a lunar theme in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing; and an artificial intelligence theme. When I got wind of this, I knew I had the perfect fit–I had a story with both! I queried the editor, he agreed to look at it, and the rest is history! “Super-Duper Moongirl and the Amazing Moon Dawdler” was published today in Issue 3 of this international SF magazine. It’s a watershed moment for any writer to be listed on the cover, and this story has granted me two watershed moments! It’s not only my first cover, it’s a reprint of my award-winning story from Writers of the Future, Volume 35.

And an added bonus! The editor hired me to narrate and produce the story as a podcast. Check out my Podcast header and click on the link and I’ll read you this story about a disabled girl on the Moon and her robodog life support unit that protects her!
