One year ago, my story “Weep No More for the Willow” appeared in DEEP MAGIC, Fall 2019. One year later, I return to the pages of Deep Magic! This time with a science fiction novelette, “Muzik Man.”
It’s the story of an android minstrel missionary, sent to save a tone-deaf world. And this time, he won’t screw up! Full of heart, this story will make you laugh, make you cry, and will take you on an adventure across the galaxy to a world where playing music can get you into a lot of trouble! Come dance with this minstrel operative as he does his best to convert the subjugated masses to the wonders of music! If you loved “Super-Duper Moongirl and the Amazing Moon Dawdler,” I am certain you will love this story just as much. And the entire issue is only $2.99!
Go ahead, make my day. Trust me, Muzik Man will make yours.
Or don’t trust me. Trust this review by award-winning author Leah Ning:
“Wulf Moon has a story here! Now that I’ve finally gotten to read it, I’ll gush: what an absolute TRIP, in the best way possible. New worlds, new creatures, and a brand spankin’ new robot who was made to play music inside and out. Had some good laughs, had some good feels, and an ending I didn’t expect. Go make friends with Muzik. He’ll charm your socks off! This story has some good, good heart in it.”
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. That’s something you may not know.
