From the Vault: Langue

Another fragment. Another incomplete story. Distinctive this time because A) I have absolutely no recollection of writing it (though it's clearly something I wrote) and B) I have absolutely no idea where I was going with it. But it seems interesting to me. In a way, it's more stock than a lot of what I've… Continue reading From the Vault: Langue

From the Vault: America the Beautiful

When we go back to stuff I wrote in the past, moving forward, I think we'll call it "From the Vault." That's the sort of thing we'll do on Tuesdays and Thursdays, on those Tuesdays and Thursdays we actually do something. This is a fragment -- an incomplete chapter one of a book never written,… Continue reading From the Vault: America the Beautiful

The Shal Mari Blues: A fragment

We continue a week where work is being... well, workish. No complaints. The start of the year is going significantly better than I could have feared. Still, there is much to be done and not much time to work here. So, this is another incomplete story -- the first chapter of an extended fanfic I… Continue reading The Shal Mari Blues: A fragment

The Old Ways, Chapter Five

I guess that depends on what people think. Let me know what you think of this particular chapter,… Continue reading The Old Ways, Chapter Five

The Old Ways, Chapter Four

And so we hit Chapter Four of The Old Ways. It seems to be gathering some fans, which is nice. Among those fans is my father, who's also a big fan of Theftworld. I think some depth comes into play in this one. For the record, as of yesterday we'd broken 200,000 words on this… Continue reading The Old Ways, Chapter Four

The Old Ways, Chapter Three

Here we have Chapter Three. Some of the feedback's been quite amazing, and I'm really glad to get it. I get the feeling a number of people like The Old Ways, at least in theory, but the execution is a bit off. On the other hand, I think this chapter begins to move more towards… Continue reading The Old Ways, Chapter Three

Dreamers (a fragment)

This is a story fragment -- one I wrote in the mid 1990's. I assume. It's in my style. It's in my files. It's definitely one of mine from the Kinko's years. And I have absolutely no memory of it. It's not impossible it was something I discussed with my friend Mason Kramer, or perhaps… Continue reading Dreamers (a fragment)
