Mindflights Publishes “Gentle Push”

My science-fiction short story, Gentle Push, is now published and available online at Mindflights. Humans retreat to Earth from the deadly Akridi horde. Gentle Push is the first person account of an ancient alien being scouting the advance and retreat. In so doing, it meets a lone human at Delta Pavonis. The encounter is not what it expects. But how does that bode for the rest of humanity?

Mindflights, is a magazine of fantasy and science fiction that is the result of the merger of two award-winning magazines: Dragons, Knights, & Angels and The Sword Review. It strives to provide quality speculative fiction and poetry that respects traditional values. Mindflights actively seeks works from new and student authors, maintaining a high standard of quality.

Mindflights also provides forums for, among other things, reader feedback. The forum for Gentle Push can be found here. Please feel free to use the forum and let the editors and the community know your reaction.

    Congratulations on the publication! Tried to read the story but it looks like the sight is down (at least for me). I’ll try again tonight.

    Just finished reading. Excellent story! You did a great job putting the characters together, especially the non-stereotypical female. I look forward to reading more of your stuff.

    By the way, I noticed you recommend Bickham and Bell in your Bio section. These are two authors I’m currently learning from. Do you feel they’ve helped you develop your craft?

      Thank you very much, and yes, I feel they helped. I think we all need different things at different times. I read both of those books at just the right time for me. I hope it works that way for you, too.
