Dan Hollifield

     Author / Publisher

My first professionally published short story is in the POD edition "Flash Of Aphelion" collection of flash fiction short-short stories on Lulu.com. My series of spaceport bar short stories, Tales From the Mare Inebrium, has been published by Allan Gilbreath's Dark Oak Press, available on the Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites in hardback, paperback, Kindle and Nook e-book editions. My self-published music albums on Create Space include two solo albums of instrumental music as well as a licensed collection of instrumental songs inspired by Stephanie Osborn's first four "Displaced Detective" novels. My steampunk short story "Test Run" is among those being shopped to the BBC by writer and editor Gareth Jones for a putative steampunk TV series, which if it actually sells, Gareth has asked if I'd be willing to become a featured writer for the series. My steampunk short story "The Dark Side of Diablo Canyon" won 2nd place in the July 2013 writing contest on the Creator And The Catalyst website, and my commissioned oil painting of "Elvis On A Stairway To Heaven" is under consideration for inclusion of fan-art to be included in a book by Roger Taylor - (not the drummer from Queen, but another Englishman by the same name.)

My e-zine Aphelion has been online since 1997, featuring the planet's finest work by amateur writers, available free to anyone with an Internet connection.
