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.

Patreon microfiction: ‘CSI: IASB.’

I’m forced to admit: I’m not exactly sure how the world of “CSI-IASB” functions.  I do know that IASB stands for “Illuminated and Ancient Seers of Bavaria,” which certainly implies certain things. But, really, sometimes these things are merely snapshots, even to me. I’ll spare you the picture that I drew.

Patreon Microfiction: “Made in Tibet.”

Ah. “Made In Tibet.”  You can take the boy out of the Cold War, but you can’t really take the Cold War out of the boy…

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Clean Your Own Mess.’

I could have sworn that I just put up “Clean Your Own Mess,” but it’s not showing up in my media library.  Go figure.  Anyway… to quote Terry Pratchett: some people don’t make friends easily.

September Showcase: September 14th.

Got a new subscriber to the Patreon!

Today’s September Showcase is a Patron-only piece that’s been taken from the if-we-get-that-far pulp serial “The Bold Marauder.” If you ever get a chance to listen to Michael Longcor’s cover of that, go for it*. I’m hoping to go really old-school with this story.

Sign up for the Patreon today!

September Showcase: September 13th.

And we’re back to showcasing the Patreon!

Today’s September Showcase is “Seasonal Affectation Disorder.” The first one I ever wrote for the Patreon.  A historical and cultural artifact, in… fact.

Moe’s Patreon! Moe’s Patreon! So good, they called it Moe’s Patreon!

Patreon microfiction: “I Want My M(age) TV.”

I just realized the hidden subtext of “I Want My M(age) TV.”  Basically, it’s this: the 1980s and 1990s are sufficiently in the past that they’re becoming suitably exotic for fantasy tropes.  This has any number of personal implications, and I’m not sure that I fully approve of any of them.

September Showcase, September 7th.

One week of hyping the Patreon later, and I’ll say this for it: I’ve been putting up a bunch of stuff for the last year or so.  I should start trying to figure out how to sell more of it.  I know: crazy thinking, yeah?

Today’s September Showcase is something that showed up here, first: “Fragment Of A Recently Unearthed Saga From the Proto-Indo-European Period Narrating the Battle Between A Human Clan And What Was Apparently A Herd Of Malevolent, Psionic Woolly Mammoths Bent On Wiping Humanity Out.” I always liked how that one came out.  If you did, too: hey, tell your friends.

September Showcase: September 6th.

Finally, somebody signed up for my Patreon! This was particularly awkward because I kind of messed up the thermostat; I had it pegged at $130 when it should have been $135.  But I didn’t want to update it, because it would have looked like I was goosing the total. Fortunately, the question is moot.

Today’s September Showcase is Patron-only: a 200 word microfiction called “Ghost Story.”  It was written in honor of me getting a new Patron.  Want to see more of those?  Well, subscribe.  Or, if you’ve already subscribed, then encourage subscription in others.

Patreon Microfiction: “A Rocky Start.”

A Rocky Start” is cheerful.  Really and truly, it is. Or at least it’s a lighter touch than usual.
