Fantasy Humor Jay Lake

Jay Lake was bigger than life. Generous, productive, relentless. That time when he annoyed his primary muse by flirting with her sisters and she cursed him to write trash. Yeah, that time he needed to fix that. Always creative. That was Jay.

Horror zombies Jay Lake memorial anthology ski bum zombies mount hood intelligently redesigned

Previously published in JAY LAKE: INTELLIGENTLY REDESIGNED (2008). A limited edition anthology edited by J.K. Richard, written by friends of Jay Lake for Jay after his first bout with colon cancer. One of my very few zombie stories, written during my hardcore ski bum days while teaching special education classes at Welches Middle School. Several of my students advised me on the appropriate jargon for the era. Ah, Jay. You left us far too soon. Thanks for the inspiration.

Science Fiction Historical dieselpunk twisted romance Jay Lake

More collaborative writing, this time an example of the dual-voice method. Jay and I wrote a lot of stories together; whoever began one was the first author. One day Jay wrote a snippet about this crazy bastard named Topper, and sent me the file; I wrote Grace's parts. “Rolling Steel” was published in Clarkesworld in 2009, reprinted in their "Year 3" volume, then again in "The Mammoth Book of Dieselpunk" anthology in 2015. Shaun Farrell and Mur Lafferty read the story for Clarkesworld’s podcast.
