Merry Christmas

Here's a reminder that there are Free Stories collected on this page here for you to link out to and peruse when you have some time.

The latest link is to my current Confabulator Cafe/Straeon Manor story - A Delicate Man.

Of course the title came from Fiona Apple's brilliant debut single Criminal. But the twists and turns of the story were probably more inspired by H.P. Lovecraft than anyone else. Certainly the ending owes Howard quite a debt. 

I am stricken with the realization that I have written a good deal more horror or suspense than I previously thought. I think of myself as a science fiction writer, but there's some dark stuff inside and it's working out in these little tales. Dark Fantasy, maybe, rather than horror. I dunno, you tell me.

So if you're feeling the need to read some interesting stories for free in the odd moments over today and tomorrow or any time, really, click here. I'd be grateful if you'd let me know what you think, too.

Merry Christmas! See you on Friday.
