Neanderthals rule the world. Their civilization is peaceful and prosperous. But Sapiens are second class citizens. And one Sapiens, an assistant to the Neanderthals’ greatest scientist, thinks he’s found a way to change that—and perhaps forever alter Earth’s history in the process.
My story “Second Chances” is out today in the new anthology Tales From Alternate Earths Volume III. This is my second story in an Inklings Press anthology: “A Sword of Bone” appeared in Tales of Magic and Destiny.

About the book, from the publisher:
