"Gnomes of Rock City" now on sale!

Purchase it here for one dollar!

I also still have the original published version here, safe and sound.  There are some revisions in the epub version, so if you like what you see, you can purchase and compare.

My New Short Story Webstore

Here's a new experiment I thought I'd try out.

I've taken the stories I've published in various forms through the years and converted them to ebooks.  They are now on sale in the "My Writing" section of this blog.  The webstore service comes courtesy of Gumroad.  This has been in the works for about a month, as I revised each story (using Sigil to create the epub files) and designed each cover (with helpful tips from a friend at pre · poster · ous).  Now it's live, and I'm just hoping all the links and files work.

Now that this is up, I've taken down the link to the version of "No Different From Anyone Else" that I had on this site.  I just didn't think it represented my best work as well as the new ebook version does.  I'll probably leave "Gnomes of Rock City" up, though.

Right now, the catalogue includes:
  • "No Different From Anyone Else"
  • "The Tether"
  • "Perdition Lost"
  • "The End of the Rainbow, Starring..."
  • "Jo, the Bat, and the Cat"
  • "The Invisible Wall Outside the School"
  • "A Short Meditation on Death"
If you like them, be sure to share them on your social network of choice.

Short Story: "The Gnomes of Rock City"

I've published a new story on this site: "The Gnomes of Rock City".  It's my foray into completely fake and goofy articles.  In this case, it's based on good-natured ribbing of my hometown, its history, and its tourist traps.

And yes, this is the same Rock City as in American Gods.  It's pretty much exactly as Neil Gaiman describes it.
