Extra Microfiction at Patreon: ‘The Adventure of the Tekeli-li Graveyard.’

The Adventure of the Tekeli-li Graveyard‘ was written partially because of a little Fiction Friday challenge over at Phantom Sway — but mostly because I gotta push the Patreon again this month to get the total above $150 a month, again. So I figure that it’s worth it as, hey, an investment or something. So, hey, tell your friends. It’s a great time to get in on the ground floor!

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Merely a Stone.’

Merely A Stone” is, admittedly, a little disturbing. I mean, what if the stone is lying?  I mean, if it can magically talk it can magically lie.

Something to think about.

My Patreon!

Patreon Microfiction: ‘A.I.’

Maybe this is the answer. Maybe. Maybe not. Probably not. Anyway: “AI.” Enjoy!

I am so amazingly lazy this week. But the Patreon remains:

Patreon microfiction: ‘Godkillers.’

Oh, this is entertaining: I’m currently working on an expansion of the idea behind “Godkillers.” I always knew that there was a short story lurking in that one; and a few days ago I woke up, and realized what it was. And here it is, on the rotation.  Excellent.

@Patreon reverses billing changes (which should have been opt-in).

Many artists on my Twitter feed are feeling cautiously relieved right now: Patreon has decided to not roll out planned changes to their billing system, after all. For those who don’t remember, Patreon had decided to — somewhat out of the blue — change it so that creators were no longer paying processing fees for transactions. Instead, those transactions would be charged to backers directly, and in a way that de-incentivized $1 monthly pledges. Cue anger, frustration, canceled pledges, confusion, and delay*. So now Patreon is canceling the planned switch and will now do something else to solve the issues that they apparently were hoping to fix with this switch. (more…)

Patreon Microfiction: “From “The Deadly Saffron Sign.””

From “The Deadly Saffron Sign”‘ happened when I asked myself, what would have it been like if John D. MacDonald had written some Mythos stories? I suspect that Travis McGee* would have handled things OK. He always did.

 

*Surely you are familiar with Travis McGee.

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Unfinished Business.’

He was, you know. The guy in “Unfinished Business.”  If they taught classes in it, he’d have gotten his own chapter in the textbooks.

Looking for a gift for yourself, this holiday season? Try my Patreon!

For just one buck a month you can guarantee yourself — and a bunch of other people! — a new short story of at least three thousand words every month!  Plus weekly microfiction, book recommendations, and new RPG material, but that stuff is covered already while the 3K word short story thing is dependent on $150/month and things are technically at $149*. So it’s never been a better time to give to others by giving something to yourself!

 

*I’m sure that the pledges will fix themselves pretty soon.

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.
