Ferrett Steinmetz’s Stories

I’d been a writer for twenty years, without much success.  Then, in 2008, I went to the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers’ Workshop, and it showed me everything I’d been doing wrong.  In fact, Clarion was so influential on me that I rebooted my writing career, calling off those past two decades and starting over again from August 2008.  Hence, everything you’ll see here is from 2008 on.

Upcoming Short Story Publications:

  • “Black Swan Oracle,” Escape Pod Audio Production
  • “In Extremis,” Space and Time
  • “Rooms Formed of Neurons and Sex,” GUD Magazine (late 2014)

    The link for “In The Land of the Deaf” goes to a “No Results Found” page.

      On that “No Results Found” page, it directs me to “refine my search, or use the navigation above.” But there is no navigation above, nor did I knowingly search anything.

      That should be now fixed. Whoops.
