 A short story collection: 21 stories and about 64,000 words.

Closer Than You Think is a journey from the near future -- self-driving cars, automation, 3D printing -- to the far future where, who knows? houses may own humans or climate change might force the last of humanity to take shelter deep under the ocean. No aliens, but the farther forward we go, the more alien the human beings get!

About the author

  S.A. Barton lives in coastal Virginia with his wife, teen stepson, two little ones, and demanding cat (as they all are). His path to the present was a strange, sometimes harrowing, and winding one; you may find this reflected in his writing. He has previously appeared in the pages of Daily Science Fiction, Penumbra, and in Amazing Stories.


He's a winner of the first Amazing Stories Gernsback Writing Contest.

He is also proud to be a self-published indie author with dozens of short ebooks and collections to his credit, which may be found through sabarton.com. He also tweets far too much as @Tao23.

This is his third short story collection!

While most of S.A. Barton's work is in science fiction, some of it strays into other genres such as fantasy, mainstream, alternate history and others -- like the cat, it wanders some.
