Patreon Microfiction: Gesture of Good Faith.

Gesture of Good Faith” represents a particular peeve of mine: in a world of monsters and peasants, it’d be the easiest thing ever to get the latter on your side pretty quickly.  All you need are the severed heads of enough local monsters.  It works on both an idealistic and pragmatic level, really.

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Songs of My People.’

You don’t see stuff like “Songs of my People” often enough, in my not particularly humble opinion.  I mean, sure, that sprite probably drinks Pabst ironically and has a job crafting artisanal EBay listings, but that’s just a side effect from living in Hoboken.  He doesn’t mean anything by it.

Patreon Microfiction: Pegasus Express.

Look, I’m not saying that the hero of “Pegasus Express” could be bribed into using his powers for evil.  But if he can pick up some ethical side work on the way, well, where’s the harm?  — Especially if there’s good money in it.  Very few entities out there object to getting paid.

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Liberty Reclaimed.’

I suppose you can blame “Liberty Reclaimed” on that one Mass Effect 2 DLC.  The image of the Statue of Liberty’s head in a hoarder’s room somewhere… did not appeal to me.  This isn’t ME fanfic, of course, but space opera is space opera.

Patreon Microfiction: ‘The Case of the Forged Fissionables.’

The Case of the Forged Fissionables‘ could be longer, except that I’m having enough trouble writing the post-apocalyptic fantasy detective novel that I’m writing now, let alone starting a pulp SF detective novel where I don’t even know what the ‘case’ is.  A man’s got to know when to concentrate on one thing at a time.

Patreon Microfiction: “Mephitis Vice.”

As I said at the time: there’s a book in “Mephitis Vice,” but somebody else can write it.  Somebody else who is not me, because I just don’t know if I can do the source material properly.  Basically, I’m afraid that if I’m the one who tries to write it, the book will just end up stinking.

Patreon Microfiction: “But Is The Warranty Voided?”

I thinkBut Is The Warranty Voided?” was because of something involving my phone, but I don’t remember. Also, weirdly: I thought that I had put it up already, but apparently not. Not much else to say, honestly.

Patreon Microfiction: Proper Division of Badassery.

Ah, “Proper Division of Badassery.”  Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I had a burning desire to use the phrase ‘bum-legs’ in something and have it make sense.  And lo! — it has been done.

Patreon Microfiction: Broad-Spectrum Colony.

Ah, “Broad-Spectrum Colony.”  The day may come when I resist the urge to make an obvious pun in the title.  …But it is not this day.
