My new story, “Immortal,” is out now in Flash Point Science Fiction. It’s accompanied by the perfect cover art from Kevin Pabst.

“Immortal” is about a boy who asks the gods to give him immortality—and unfortunately for him, they grant his wish.

In a way, this story is a mirror of “The Last Engine,” which appeared in Sci Phi Journal in 2021. That flash fiction was about trying to put off an inevitable ending, while “Immortal” is about the terror of knowing an end may never come.

  1. Dude. Zanjan is amazing. I bought it here in Austria for my 15 year old and its incredible.
    Am encouraging other youth to purchase.
    I hope to complete a graphic novel i working on myself, and its been a journey. I can draw, and my daughter has given the basic plot lines, and i have a few pages of the script done after 15 years of dithering.
    Would love to share if you are interested in seeing it. Its not Bahai, but more of a female character based sci fi fantasy.

    • Thank you! This is all great to hear. It’s wonderful that you’ve been able to collaborate on the graphic novel with your daughter.

      Please feel free to send me a note through my contact form and I’d be very happy to respond with some resources that I’ve found helpful.
