Speculative fiction magazine The Colored Lens published my short story “A Diamond in the Mind’s Eye” in their Summer 2017 issue #24. You can buy a Kindle copy of the whole issue here. The story itself just went live on the magazine’s homepage today; you can read it here.
The story follows an explorer who has been tracking a legendary giant diamond across the galaxy. What he finds is more disappointing than he expected, and ultimately far more valuable.
I’ve published a few stories before, but this is my first paid piece.
