Fantasy Literary Fiction Science Fiction Philosophy slipstream wolves vicious civilization other worlds

"We orbit him because he is our god. His scent is authority, his mind sharp as rock-honed teeth." | This story is 100% experimental, with space wolves in love, the philosophy of civilizations, and the confessions of a god all packed into one. It first landed in Humanagerie, a literary anthology about the intersection of human and animal behavior. Which is also 100% perfect.

Science Fiction dystopia Aikido

This is a near future story, but since I wrote it back in the 1990s, it turns out to be set in the present day. I was going to change the dates for this reprint version, but when I re-read it I realized I had assumed a stock market crash in 2008. Given what actually happened in 2008, I'm a little scared to pick a new date for economic collapse. I'd rather not be right again.
