    I was pleasantly surprised today to receive my first acceptance for a work of fiction I'd submitted to a publication.

    That publication, Sci Phi Journal, received the 2022 European Science Fiction Society Hall of Fame Award for Best SF Magazine, so I'm thrilled that they liked my work.

    It's a short piece, so not a lot of money, but I guess now I can claim to be an "Author" as well as an "Internationally published author"! I'm not sure when the story will actually be published, but will share that information once I receive it.

    Thanks to all of the people in the SCWA  Science Fiction/Fantasy Virtual Genre Group and the other SCWA critique groups I participate in for the constructive criticism I've been given since joining.

    Steve Mullaney’s second novel, RANDOMIZATION, is coming June 01, 2023 (from Wilmont & Wilshire).

    In this 76k word thriller, Matthew kills someone just to see what it would be like, and it soon turns into an itch he needs to scratch. But, no one gets away with murder---or do they? Karma takes care of what the law does not.

    My third novel is out! It's a sequel to my first book, What If? The latest is titled If Only and continues the story of Rachel and Mallory and their family. It's available online in print and Kindle versions. Now that this one is done, I can get to work on the third and final book in the What If series.
