While digging through my folders, I rediscovered a batch of short stories I wrote a few years back. Some of them are really quite good, too, so it would be a pity to see them go to waste. I’ve decided to go through them again, punch up any sagging sentences or paragraphs and put them together into a collection. I’ll probably be ready to go on them sometime in late March, so they’re still a ways out, but today you can catch a peak at the stories that are going into this collection.
A Day in the Life of a Dark Lord – Fantasy and satire collide with the least-evil Dark Lord ever.
My Mechanical Soul – The story of the world’s first robotic detective
Pollen – A mysterious pollen has spread across the world, leaving Jace [who is allergic to the pollen] completely isolated
The Blasted Lands – A mysterious traveler is on the trail of his quarry through a bizarre, twisted world
The Box – A box containing something so desirable that people will kill for it
The Watchers – Two scientists are forced to leave the confines of their research station and venture into a world they know little about
These Tattered Dreams – Two synthetic humans meet after the end of the world
Two for the Money – Lister is ripped from his comfortable life by a girl who loves adventure
Public Security – One man’s insanity infects the entire city, or is it the other way around?
I’ve also got a few others short stories that are finished or close to being finished that I may put some work into if I feel like they’re good enough to make it. I’ll drop some more information, and a cover, in the coming weeks.
