Three "new weird" or "slipstream" stories set in the desert. All three explore relationships between men and women, with the desert backdrop providing just enough strangeness to push their interactions to the edge. If you enjoyed Hari Kunzru's Gods Without Men, you might enjoy these. "Chill Out": Is now the right time for Brad and Amy to have kids? Brad wants to start a family right away, but Amy wants to focus on her writing career. Will a drive in the desert help them settle the argument? "Glass": Derek can't understand his hiking partners' objections to his Google Glass. But alienating friends isn't the only danger of his obsession with Augmented Reality.
"What I Did for Love": Dave is a journeyman carpenter. Now he needs to drill a hole in his girlfriend's head. Does he have the nerve to finish the job?

About the Author

My book, "All the Wild and Lonely Places: Journeys in a Desert Landscape," was published in 2000. Since then, I've taught writing at the University of San Diego and worked for the Desert Protective Council. I've recently turned my attention to fiction. I've got a fantasy fanfiction set in the Elder Scrolls/Skyrim universe, "The Song of Deirdre," on my website, on the FanFiction site, and on An Archive of Our Own, where it's available for download in ebook formats. I'm shopping my new historical romance/suspense book, "Daring and Decorum: A Highwayman Novel," to agents and publishers. If that doesn't work out, I'll publish it through Smashwords. Meanwhile, I plan to self-publish a collection of three stories, "Desert Trilogy," here on Smashwords.
