023SG: The Formation

As we stated in the teaser yesterday, today we begin the bridging 'meta' series between The Home Front -- the era of Mystery Men up through the second World War and its immediate aftermath (specifically capping around 1950, if this post is any judge, though "My White Plume" is a letter written in 1952, so take these… Continue reading 023SG: The Formation

Patreon: Debriefing Leather

As promised and finally here (on the Patreon for $5+) -- a short story that actually had the good manners to stick to being a short story. It's a faster read as a result. It's got a lot in it for shorter, though. (And it's not a short-short by any means.) Marco and the Bagmen… Continue reading Patreon: Debriefing Leather

Interviewing Leather: Diverged in a Wood (Patreon)

As hoped for as of yesterday, the first beta of "Diverged in a Wood" is now up on Patreon. I hope people like it. As mentioned before,  "Diverged" is the story of Lora Layton, Leather's older sister... and what happens after the Amplifier magazine article "Interviewing Leather" is published and she realizes that her sister has some… Continue reading Interviewing Leather: Diverged in a Wood (Patreon)

Justice Wing: Legacies of the Past

So, every so often things don't work out quite as you expected them to. That's not too surprising at this point. When you're a writer, sometimes the stories take unexpected turns. Which is what happened to me this time. You see, I finished the Prosperina myth, and figured I was going back into normal production.… Continue reading Justice Wing: Legacies of the Past

From Sinister Bedfellows: Anthology

As the title says, this is my entry to mckenzee's Sinister Bedfellows: Anthology. The idea behind the book was simple enough. The prospective authors would go through the webcomic, find a strip that spoke to them, and write a short-short about it. mckenzee would then put them all together and self-publish through lulu. It was… Continue reading From Sinister Bedfellows: Anthology

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

Science Fiction

Planetfall

Another story from the late nineties, for this our Storytelling day. This one is science fiction. It made the rounds, it got bounced back. Looking at it now, I can see why. Still, there's a bit or two I like. This isn't Imperial Space, for the record. Or if it is, it's before everything. If… Continue reading Planetfall

Fantasy, Short Story

Automotive Care

It's Storytelling day, and I have a short story for you all. This one is about a year old. I finished it and sent it off on the rounds to the usual suspects. No one nibbled, and I'm not sure I can blame them. But still, it's grist for the mill, right? This is fantasy… Continue reading Automotive Care

Death is a Moving Target

Not too long ago, David Malki !, Ryan North and Matthew Bennardo put out a call of submissions for a new high concept short story collection called Machine of Death. The concept was simple. A machine had been invented that would give a simple, albeit mysterious, answer to the question "how am I going to… Continue reading Death is a Moving Target
