Story from Audible.com

A number of my novels are available from Audible.com, but if you want to check out my short stories, there is only one available:

"Identity Theft," first published in Down These Dark Spaceways, then reprinted in Nebula Awards Showcase 2007. Both these anthologies were edited by Mike Resnick.

"Identity Theft" won Spain's top science fiction award the Premio UPC de Ciencia Ficción, for Best Novella of the Year. It was a finalist for both the Hugo and Nebula Awards in 2005.

It's a hard-boiled dectective story set on Mars. It is also the beginning of my novel Red Planet Blues.

Check out Audible.com for "Identity Theft."
