Yeah I know it’s not the Martian, and there’s no movie, yet, but the second short story of my own dystopian stranded on Mars series, “Martian Rules” has just been published on Stupefying Stories Showcase.
Excerpt from Martian Rules:
Eternal fame, top hammock, and a shoe contract all came down to five used drinking straws clutched in the oversized mitt of a slightly inebriated Irishman. We consumed half my stash of medicinal whiskey celebrating the landing and arguing over Mick’s self-proclaimed Martian Rules. “Down a shot. Pray or don’t pray, as ye see fit. Choose.”
The first short story in the series, “Three-Quarters Martian” was a first-place contest winner at On the Premises, was honored on the Million Writers Notable Short Stories of 2011 list, and is available as an e-Book on Amazon.
The third in the series, “Godspeed, Martians,” which I’m still hawking, garnered an Honorable Mention in a Writers of the Future contest but hasn’t sold yet.
