His works have been featured in such publications as Residential Aliens, Fear and Trembling, Crossed Genres, and Christian Sci-Fi Journal, as well as a number of anthologies. Recently, he has also published an anthology of his own work entitled Zero Hour, which is available on www.amazon.com and at Smashwords. He is employed as a middle school special education teacher.

As with many of Stoney M. Setzer's other stories, the set-up for "The Other Woman" reads like a "Twilight Zone" episode. The main character is a man who has just announced his engagement. The next day, a woman he has never met comes to his office...begging him to dump his fiancee and take her back. Predictably, his fiancee is less than thrilled, but in this case, there is an added problem: He can't remember this other woman--at all.
Christian themes and moral decisions appear frequently in Setzer's writing, and this time he focuses on committed relationships. What happens when that commitment is tested for the first time? While this story does not have the same "pulp thriller" vibe of Setzer's other works, it does keep the reader engaged (no pun intended) to see how the situation gets resolved.
