Issue #20 of Beneath Ceaseless Skies is now online, including my story “The Land of Empty Shells.”
The rest of the birthing was hard work, but painless. Dziko and Terra sprinkled water over the clay to soften it and kneaded the flesh together until there was no way to separate his riverbed brown from her sunset orange.

I finally got around to updating my webpage, which had gotten a bit out of date. (The last update before this one was back in March, I think.) One disadvantage of making the website from scratch (instead of using something like wordpress) is that it makes updates more of a hassle, mainly because I chose a design where I generate icons for each of my stories. It may be time to switch to something a little more streamlined.
