Patreon Microfiction: ‘To-Do List .’

SM Stirling once noted that it’s something completely different than insanity when the voices in your head are telling you things that are true. Or at least useful. ‘To-Do List’ lives in that headspace.

Patreon Microfiction: The Principle of the Thing.

Heh. There might have been a joke there if I had called it “The Principal of the Thing.” But then people might have written in to let me know that I meant ‘Principle,’ so I guess I dodged a bullet but not noticing the potential joke before now.

Patreon not-Microfiction: Terry.

There is a lot of rough language in “Terry.” But in the protagonist’s defense: you’d be swearing, too. Don’t read this around kids, and bear in mind that it’s considerably longer than 100 words. It’s also one of the best things I’ve written this year, so there you go.

Patreon Microfiction: Down Under The Gutter.

I dunno, man. Sometimes you just need a change, you dig? Something to shake you up, get you out of your rut. Then you can look around, assess your life choices, decide what’s best for you, savvy?

Patreon Microfiction: Love those Guys.

Hydrans look kind of like reptile-quails, with big eyes and a fuzzy brown-gold carapace. The species is generally considered to be solidly in the ‘weird-looking, but kissable’ category by most humans. They don’t wear much, but Hydrans are quite fond of boots; they typically adopt various species’ styles (Terran snakeskin boots are popular). Hydrans are invariably encountered with a beer in their hand.

Patreon Microfiction: Waiting.

What is the fellow in ‘Waiting’ waiting for? Good question. Shame nobody bothered to tell him the answer, huh?

Patreon Microfiction: “Do You WANT Supervillains? Because…”

“Do You WANT Supervillains? Because…” is kind of grim, hey? I mean, the more you think about it. Oh, well: they can’t all be cheery.

Patreon Microfiction: Savage Flight From Sonora!

The full title is “Tales From The Columbian Alliance: Savage Flight From Sonora!” There are books in that setting. And I look forward for a chance to write some. At some point.

Patreon Microfiction: Fear Quite a Bit.

If you take nothing else from this website, take this: do not mess around with angels. You know Why every encounter of them starts with them saying “Fear not?” It’s because nobody survives the encounters where they don’t start off that way.

Patreon Microfiction: ‘They’re Not Even Mad.’

What happens if the weakly godlike AIs decide to just simply work around us, instead of going down the genocide/involuntary uplift paths? You don’t see many post-Singularity stories along those lines, I think. I believe that’s a bit odd, really.
