Fantasy Historical Romance cat steampunk fantasy romance gay lgbt

Last week, I posted "Thin Man," a dark fantasy set in Victorian London about a climbing boy named Dodd. Decades later, I was invited to submit a story to THE SHADOW CONSPIRACY steampunk anthology, and it occurred to me that Dodd's story wasn't finished yet. So I wrote "The Soul Jar." Out of all my short stories, this one is my favorite. See if you agree. THE SHADOW CONSPIRACY is still in print at Book View Cafe:

Fantasy Humor Romance

Herewith follows a rare description longer than the story, the tale itself being a mere 46 words: One summer Saturday, a man goes to the library, where--uncertain what he is looking for, browsing aimlessly, in no hurry to return home to the mortification awaiting him there--he wanders until he stumbles across something which he very much needs, and it is at this moment we begin our story, which never needed this preamble and, you can be assured, will not have been spoiled by it.

Humor Science Fiction Romance baseball

Baseball is a game of unlikely stories, of fortunes turned on a wild pitch or a bad hop or a miracle play. A lot has changed in the game from the early 1900s, but in 2051, its nature is still the same. As said in the movie, Bull Durham: "This is a very simple game. You throw the ball, you catch the ball, you hit the ball. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains."
