Beautiful Zion Built Above

Published February 18, 2020

I have a short story in A Mighty Fortress: Being an Anthology of Mormon Steampunk, which is the forth volume of Immortal Works's Mormon Steampunk Anthology.

My story is titled Beautiful Zion, Built Above where Latter-Day Saints have settled on the shores of Yellowstone Lake instead of near the Great Salt Lake. They have harnessed the energy of the thermal features on the lake bottom to run their city.

The story itself involves a junior repairist who starts finding enormous teeth marks on the equiptment that runs the city. Is there a prehistoric alligator living beneath the waves? If so, what can one man do about it?

The volume includes a bunch of other great stories as well.
