‘Job Along the Borderlands’ short story is up on Patreon!

The Tom Vargas story was rapidly becoming a novella. Job Along the Borderlands is a Fermi Resolution story that will appear in the short story collection, mind you. So: feedback is welcome.

New post up on Patreon: Terry.

Not microfiction: this one was a bit over 1K words. I put it up there because I should let them have more treats. I’ll bring “Terry.” over here after a week or two. And yes, that period is deliberate.

Operation JOE, Part 3

http://moelane.com/tag/operation-joe/

People ask me what it’s like to die, but fortunately I haven’t a clue.  I never remember what it’s like, and I mean that literally. My ability to form new memories gets turned off, probably because it likely hurts like a sonofabitch to have your soul forcibly held on this plane of existence while a new body that might or might not be made from your corpse is woven around you. Which is probably prudent; God forbid that I develop any kind of psychological trauma from the death/resurrection process.  I mean that literally, too. Nobody wants somebody like me to go insane.

What I do get out of the process is a collection of buzzing auditory hallucinations, the uniquely disconcerting feeling that my arteries have a thin coating of honey, and the embarrassing realization that some asshole just killed me. Me.  That’s not how it’s supposed to work!  I think that the reaction is designed to get me ready to go over and kill the asshole right back, but I don’t know.  It might be a normal response for somebody in my circumstances.

Patreon microfiction: “Tally-ho!”

Patreon!

I feel that ‘Tally-ho!’ will — assuming that we ever get FTL, galactic civilizations, and space wars — prove prophetic. “We never, ever do X in this tactical situation.” :humans look at each other: “…REALLY?”

Hey. Tell me I’m wrong.

Amazing what nine hours sleep can do, hey? Although I’ve been fixing ‘Simmons’ Book’ for a week or so. I think that it works a lot better now, so check it out if you’re a Patron. And if you’re not a Patron? Well:
