I’ve been remiss about posting here (after claiming five months ago I’d do better) so here I am to address that. Again.  There may be a flurry of posts over the next x weeks, so pop your bumbershoots!

The first thing I want to announce is that, after fifty-some-odd years of writing, I finally have a work of original fiction being officially published. The story is The Dolphin Riders and is appearing in the Sirens anthology from World Weaver Press, due out July 12 2016.


I’ll post later about what’s behind the story, but first let me tease you with a bit of content:

These sirens must have been living in places we couldn’t see, before the big flood, he whispers over the crackling fire.  Maybe not the open sea itself, but in watery caverns.  Maybe the tsunamis ruined their homes, too.

Legend has it we have always been at odds.  That our forefathers killed them when they could.  Their descendants are bold now, riding in the daytime, because they quit fearing what’s left of us.

Roberto huffs out a held breath, sits back, and nervously feeds a twig to the grasping flames.  Glowing eyes around him grow wide in a combination of speculation and disbelief.  Finally Paulo speaks again, with just a shade of his usual insolence,

They call sailors to their doom, ‘berto.  You included.


Randall G. Arnold, The Dolphin Riders
