Joy’s short stories


Cold New Planet can be found in Science Fiction Consortium, an anthology of short stories: Amazon link

Are the colonists alone on the slowly thawing planet? This planet was supposed to be theirs; their backers, who had their own agenda, had paid enough money to ensure that. And what lies under the snow and ice?

Crystal Quest is one of the new stories included in Mystic Signals – Issue 17, which combines the Jan 2012 issue of The Lorelei Signal and the February 2013 issue of Sorcerous Signals: Link

Crystal Quest combines magic, sorcerers, and sentient plants.

Fourteen other stories are included in my collection of reprints: The Doorway and Other Stories: Amazon link

The Doorway and Other stories is on sale!

The Doorway and Other Stories, my reprint collection of 14 science fiction and fantasy stories, is on sale for 99 cents for a limited time: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007SV1FB2

The blurb says 11 stories, but I added three more stories and haven’t been able to figure out how to change  the first description!

Here are fourteen of my favorite stories, and since my favorite genre is science fiction, they are mostly SF except for The Princess Quest, a tongue-in-cheek sword and sorcery epic, and Old Rex, a ghost story. They’ve all been published elsewhere, except for Royal Guardians; this is its first time in print. If you like reading about aliens, time travel, symbiotes, and humans searching for a home, family, their own bodies, etc., check it out now because at the end of the week , the price goes back up after a brief stop at $1.99.
