My first published story in a "pro" market was "Albert's Cradle," back in 1993, in Amazing Stories. I therefore was especially pleased when my story "Slipping Time" was published in the fall 2018 re-launch issue of Amazing Stories. The magazine, by the way, was started by Hugo Gernsback in 1926, making it the oldest science fiction periodical still in publication.
I was even more pleased when Amazing Stories bought another one of my stories, just written a few months ago, for publication in its Spring 2019 issue. It's entitled "The Whether App." I read from it this past weekend at the oldest continuing science fiction convention, Philcon. You can see and hear the reading in this video. I didn't read the story in its entirety. If you're dying to see how it ends, you'll need to pick up a copy of Amazing Stories this Spring. In the meantime, enjoy.
