A New Grammar for Science Fiction

Science Fiction is no longer a novelty.

We do not want to read Science Fiction because it is set in the future. Science Fiction must offer some deeper, truer view of ourselves and our place in the cosmos.


Welcome Daily Science Fiction readers!

My story, "Hope is a Thing with Rockets," is on Daily Science Fiction today! This is exciting as hell because it's my first pro sale and I've been submitting to them for years. Anyway, in anticipation of some heavier traffic here at Pravic today, I wanted to give you a chance to read some of my other (non-paying) fiction, much of which I actually like better than today's pro sale. So, here are some links to my other work:

The Guitarist

In Time's Empire, They Were All Slaves


Escape Velocity

Bedroom Eyes

Upon a Sea of Searching

I recommend "Touching," "Escape Velocity," and "Bedroom Eyes." I also wrote extensively about Philip K Dick at my old blog I'd love to hear from you, if you like what you've read. You can shoot me an email at thetotaldickhead(at) I teacher writing and literature at San Francisco State University. Well, that's about all for now. I appreciate your visit. Pravic is a science fiction zine my partner Nathaniel and I have developed. So far we've produced five issues, featuring writers like Rudy Rucker, Robert Onopa, and Ian Kappos (you may not have heard of him, but you will). We have digital editions of the last couple issues available at the "Magazine" link on the left side of the screen.
Thanks again for reading, I'm also available for birthday parties and brises!
