Hey, did you like that installment of the Bold Marauder yesterday?

Patreon!

Well, if you did: if you sign up for my Patreon you’ll be able to get another hit of that! I’ll be doing a new five hundred word installment of The Bold Marauder SF pulp serial (open for anyone to read) for each new patron until we hit $200/month; then it becomes a weekly feature! It’d be a crime to pass up this deal! So don’t!

Exclamation point!

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Four More Years.’

Patreon!

Oh, there’s absolutely a ‘real’ short story in ‘Four More Years.’ As soon as I can figure out how to apply the zinger properly. Or whether to just set the new story in the same world as this one.

Other Possible Patreon Setting: The Elmerite Order.

This would be the other one (from a few years back, suitably expanded) that I’m contemplating doing. Haven’t decided yet.

The Elmerite Order

Description: The Elmerite Order specializes in the finding of esoteric loopholes.  They’re looking for places in current math and physics where magic might be usefully inserted, or even grafted in; progress is slow, but potentially very rewarding. The tricky part is in creating magical grafts that won’t cause the occult equivalent of immune system tissue reaction.  The current Scientist paradigm (see below) is robust enough to withstand an egregious violation of the rules, but the mages who are actively trying to fiddle the metaphysical books at ground zero might not be so fortunate. And, unfortunately: ‘ground zero’ is not always a metaphor. A misstep by the Order won’t blow up a city, but it can certainly blow up a room.

Possible Patreon Setting: The Smythe-Worthington Foundation.

I first wrote this up a couple of years ago, but this Tweet encouraged me to add more to it. Now I’m trying to decide whether or not to make it the next Patreon campaign setting. Thoughts?

The Smythe-Worthington Foundation

Base assumption: time travel is possible, but you cannot change history. Alternatively, you can change history, but the act of doing so merely creates a new timeline and leaves yours untouched. Also: time travel is known, and common/cheap enough to allow non-governmental or non-military use.

The academic community did not react well to the discovery of practical time travel.  On the one hand, people were finally and suddenly able to go Downtime and prove or disprove various pet theories, once and for all; on the other hand, people were finally and suddenly able to go Downtime and prove or disprove various pet theories, once and for all.  There were regrettable incidents. Worse, there was no effective counter-measures put in place to prevent particular regrettable incidents from occurring again and again.

Patreon Microfiction: “A Favor.”

Patreon!

You can always tell when I watch certain movies, hey? Although in this case I decided that the hero of “A Favor” might not be quite that noble, after all. The temptation not to be would be strong.

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Inheritance.’

Patreon!

Although I freely admit that there are tons of ethics questions still being raised in ‘Inheritance.’ Possibly even harder ones than the ones involving black magic. But that’s not the mage’s problem, is it?

Patreon Microfiction: “Conniving Good.”

Patreon!

There is absolutely a longer story in “Conniving Good,” but I’m not exactly sure how it’d go. To be completely honest about it, it’d involve themes that I vaguely associate with tiresome people on the Internet. I’d rather not find out too late that that sort of thing is contagious.
