I’m really excited to announce I have new collection available. It’s ten short-short fantasy and science fiction stories, spanning twenty years (!) of my writing career. (Holy moly.)

Here are the deets:

Praise for Dayle A. Dermatis

“…One of the best writers working today.”
USA Today bestselling author Dean Wesley Smith

“Another awesome flash piece is, ‘The Return’ by Dayle A. Dermatis. This coming of age flash blends ancestor worship and lunar travel through a poetically inventive conceit of ‘speaking trees’. This piece is a flash SF triumph, recommended for both theme and technique.”

“I was particularly struck by the little gem, ‘Sultan’s Sons’ by Dayle A. Dermatis. This was, in my opinion, the…strongest story in the entire collection.”

“You want something new and something fresh and I think I got that when I accepted [‘The Sultan’s Sons’] from…Dayle Dermatis.”
—Armand Rosamilia, Editor of Clash of Steel
