Putting the finishing touches to my next collection of speculative fiction stories. Very close now to engaging Amazon Create Space to assist with cover design and internal formatting.  Have been looking extensively through the fotolia and other image libraries for an image for the front cover.  Surprisingly I still don’t have a name for the collection. It comprises some 36 stories mostly at flash fiction length with 5 somewhat longer stories. Cheers!

My short story “Other Side” has just been published on Earl Wynn’s Farther Stars Than These site:  http://www.fartherstars.com/search/label/David%20K%20Scholes
