My short story The Real Rachel Winterbourne has been published on Perihelion Science Fiction online magazine. The story concerns a man named Jim, whose supermodel wife Rachel agrees to make clones of herself so that the clones can be sold to the highest bidder. When his marriage breaks down Jim begins to wonder if Rachel has in fact left him, switching herself with one of the clones, and eventually sets out on a quest to discover the truth.
In my mind, this story was set in the same near-future world as Voids, the novella I co-authored with Martin Greaves
The Real Rachel Winterbourne is free to read online here.
I'm proud of this story, so I'm happy it found a good home at Perihelion. My thanks to Editor-in-Chief Sam Bellotto Jr for purchasing it.

March will see the publication of a couple of the sci-fi short stories I wrote last year. First up will be my story of human cloning, The Real Rachel Winterbourne, which will appear online in Perihelion Magazine on March 12th.
Then on 28th March, Dark Designs: Tales of Mad Science will be released by Shadow Work Publishing. The book will open with my story Life Among the Insects. This is the story of Catherine, a scientist working at a government facility studying various types of chameleonic creatures, including some top secret life-forms that are kept below ground.
Profits from the sale of Dark Designs will go to a great cause: Doctors Without Borders.
You can see the cover art and Table of Contents for Dark Designs above. My thanks to the good people at Shadow Work Publishing for including my story.
