Here's a new story!

Exciting news!


Aqueduct Press will be publishing
my next collection,
"Other Places"


Life unfolds in strange ways. You may encounter people from your past living in your former apartments, or find you have a penis as you engage in war-dreams, or find a planet filled with ghosts that look exactly like the ghosts back home. Is it possible they are the same as the ghosts back home? Wherever you travel, there are tough decisions to make about the aliens you may have harmed and the aliens who may harm you. Other Places, Karen Heulerís latest story collection, follows travelers
as the familiar becomes strange, and the strange becomes life.





===============================

Who said an apocalypse has to be all bad?


What if the apocalypse came--and it was beautiful?


When a virus leaps the species barrier, people all over New York and New Jersey start singing and climbing to the rooftops, to the bridges, to lamp post and road sign, steeple and water tower, singing gloriously, triumphantly, tirelesslyóand dying. When itís all over, Manhattan has to rebuild a new society, and it seems to be having a lot of help in the form of angels, gods, and walking myths. Whatís real? And does it really matter? It does to Dale, searching for her missing daughter, and to Omar, an entomologist searching for the cure, if there is one, with little interest from those in the grip of the new order.

Reactions to "Glorious Plague"


"Heuler manages to create a parody in this beautifully designed novel - a poke into all the religious versions of the end of the world and in doing so supplies us with human interest and the grand human comedy in the Greek sense. This is a glorious `what if' novel, told with such conviction that it seems entirely possible. Can the apocalypse be like this? The way things are going at present it is not outside the realm of possibility. How I would love to see the creators/​producers/​directors/​audiences that constantly applaud every variation of Marvel comic book stories and related absurdities get hold of this book. Now THERE is entertainment."--Grady Harp, top Amazon reviewer

"This quirky and smart postapocalyptic novel works brilliantly ... " --Publishers Weekly
