Queer Sci-Fi Flash Fiction Anthology – Renewal!


I’m in! I’ve been selected for inclusion in the Queer Sci-fi Flash Fiction Anthology: Renewal with my short story, Loyalty Index!

Each included story has a maximum word count of 300 words. You have no idea how constraining that is and to manage a complete story and have it chosen makes me very proud.

We’re still waiting to hear which selection will be up for awards. The book will be out in the fall and they like to keep us in suspense. When I know more details, I’ll be sure to share!


A New Identity!

Hello everyone! After serious consideration, I’ve decided to change up my pen name to J. Alan Veerkamp, so new readers might take my efforts more seriously. I love my original Mann Ramblings identity, but the tongue in cheek nature might be seen as an author whose work in more silly in nature or devoid of good content.

So, I’ve made some changes.

Links are up to my social media as well as my stories originally published on Gay Authors.org under Mann Ramblings. More posts will be coming, hopefully soon.

My three sci-fi novels, The Luxorian Fugitive, A Cook’s Tale, and Priest & Pariahs have found new homes with NineStar Press with a refreshed second edition of all three. Keep on the lookout for more news as it comes. I’m so excited to see where we can go from here.

Hope you’ll be coming with me!
