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.

My slightly awkward Patreon solicitation.

It’s slightly awkward because — for reasons absolutely unrelated to the public relations disaster that Patreon put itself in* — the vagaries of the system have put me back down to only one dollar (and thirty eight cent**) pledge away from providing my patrons with a 3K short story every month. So if you’re interested in getting some dang good fiction and gaming material, check out my Patreon! From my point of view, there’s never been a better time, really.

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: ‘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.

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.
