This entry is part 1 of 6 in the series Corbett-877

It's Monday, which normally means 'myth day,' but you'll notice this isn't a myth. At least, not directly. We're going to be giving the myths a bit of a break. Understand, we're not angry at the myths. The myths are a lovely thing. However, right now the word-count for the myths exceeds the word-count for both… Continue reading Corbett-877 #1

This entry is part 7 of 15 in the series Lovelace½

And we're back on track with Lovelace 1/2. You may notice, if you've an interest in such things, that we've taken the "Story Day" off the post name. After a while, it seems a bit ridiculous to leave it on. Obviously, today's a 'story day.' We're telling stories over here. Last time out, we had a… Continue reading Lovelace½ #7

This entry is part 6 of 15 in the series Lovelace½

As I stated on Wednesday, I ran into some trouble on Wednesday -- and unfortunately there was more than a little crap that came up, which meant some necessary revisions to Lovelace 1/2 part 6 couldn't get finished until late on Thursday. So, this is going to be our Friday post this week. It means putting… Continue reading Lovelace½ #6

This entry is part 5 of 15 in the series Lovelace½

Week five of Lovelace 1/2, which has been going quite well so far. It certainly seems to be popular and I enjoy the 'figuring out Andi's limits' discussions that recur. (For those who have asked -- oh yes, she has them. In her own way.) Of course, sooner or later we need to move to the… Continue reading Lovelace½ #5

This entry is part 4 of 15 in the series Lovelace½

Part four of Lovelace 1/2. I've been enjoying the speculation of the limits of Andi's new abilities. There's some good meat for that discussion in this one -- I think, at least. As well as the seeds of... well, what's going to come next. Enjoy! Andi stared. "What did you say?" "I said you played that… Continue reading Lovelace½ #4

This entry is part 3 of 15 in the series Lovelace½

And now, part three of Lovelace 1/2. So far folks seem to like the story, and that's awesome. This part is a hair shorter -- it's hard, sometimes, to end on a dramatic beat, as a serial requires, and still make it a heavy length. That said, I'm sure there are plenty of people that are… Continue reading Lovelace½ #3

This entry is part 2 of 15 in the series Lovelace½

Part two of the new ongoing story Lovelace 1/2. Folks seemed to like Andi the last time out, which is very cool. I should mention something right at the outset. I work at a private school myself -- some of the details at Brooks-Carillon comes from my school. However, the location of the school -- just… Continue reading Lovelace½ #2

This entry is part 1 of 15 in the series Lovelace½

On Wednesdays we'll be presenting stories. Which, you know, isn't materially different from Mondays, where we present stories, or Friday, where we present stories. We're kind of a story operation, if you think about it. However, Mondays we specifically present myth. Fridays are devoted (at least for the moment) to serials and one-shots in the Justice… Continue reading Lovelace½ #1

Incomplete, Science Fiction

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

Imperial Space, Science Fiction, Short Story

Hephaestus Fallen

So, this is one of those stories I can't believe I still have kicking around on my hard drive. For the record, this is a thirteen thousand word story, set wholly in my Imperial Space universe, with a Hotchkiss/Leopold drive and transitions and the Orgalins who confederated with Concordia in the war that's the centerpiece… Continue reading Hephaestus Fallen
