Patreon Microfiction: “Save a Penny, Save The World.”

Save a Penny, Save The World exists almost entirely for the last line.  Which is funny, because I thought that I didn’t really know how to end it, at first. Apparently, I had — I just hadn’t told myself yet. …Well, that explanation makes sense to me.

Patreon microfiction: ‘Fear Not.’

Fear Not…”  ah, angels are fascinating concepts.  Fascinating, infinitely suitable for stories, and terrifying beyond rational thought.  You can run them through the Michael Landon filter for a while, but… they always snap back to the original conception.

Patreon microfiction: ‘CSI: IASB.’

I’m forced to admit: I’m not exactly sure how the world of “CSI-IASB” functions.  I do know that IASB stands for “Illuminated and Ancient Seers of Bavaria,” which certainly implies certain things. But, really, sometimes these things are merely snapshots, even to me. I’ll spare you the picture that I drew.

The Mysterion Patreon.

Mysterion, for those who might or might not remember, was an anthology book of speculative fiction published in 2016 or so that dealt with Christian themes. The publishers (Enigmatic Mirror Press) sent me a copy of it, at unfortunately precisely the wrong possible personal time for me to actually do anything like usefully review it. Which isn’t their fault, and it’s a good book.  Pick it up.

Well, now Enigmatic Mirror Press has a Patreon to support their new fanzine (also called Mysterion), which will be a publication “that specializes in Christian-themed speculative fiction (fantasy, science fiction, and horror) and pays professional rates.”  Check it, as they say, out.

Patreon Microfiction: “Marching Through Alabama.”

Marching Through Alabama” is set in an interesting world.  It’s also this one.  I have the broad outlines of the general war that took place on the North American continent during their 1860s firmly set in my head… which is probably where it will stay, because while I don’t much care for getting every single historical detail right I also don’t much care for kicking fire anthills.  God help me if I get a detail on a single company-level officer’s career or habits wrong, because the Civil War buffs* never will…

*Sayeth the man with a level in Civil War Buff.  But only a single level.  I am aware of my limitations.

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Tears in Rain.’

Tears in Rain” reminds me that I have to decide whether or not to go see Blade Runner 2049. I ain’t in a great head space right now when it comes to Hollywood. But still, I heard that it was good.

Patreon Microfiction: “Made in Tibet.”

Ah. “Made In Tibet.”  You can take the boy out of the Cold War, but you can’t really take the Cold War out of the boy…

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Clean Your Own Mess.’

I could have sworn that I just put up “Clean Your Own Mess,” but it’s not showing up in my media library.  Go figure.  Anyway… to quote Terry Pratchett: some people don’t make friends easily.

September Showcase: completed (but sign up anyway).

All in all, plugging the Patreon was successful. I really wanted to get to the 3K word short story level, and we made it.  So, victory!  but I’m not even remotely going to complain if people decide to join up.  After all, at $200 there’s another reward.

I decided that today’s September Showcase is that poem that I revised and just put up here. Because I liked it. I should do more poems.
