Need some romance in your mad science gadget capers? How about tough dames, aliased noir baddies, and elastic collisions? Well check this out: Bumped.
Check out my latest pro-published short of 2014! Read it for FREE at the great Universe Annex of the Grantville Gazette by Baen Books’ Eric Flint. Thank you, Sam Hidaka and Paula Goodlett!
SORRY, TAKEN DOWN FOR SUBMISSIONS. THANKS FOR ALL THE COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS!!
Thank you, again, to all the folks who contributed to “ILYAMY”. My hope is to fix it up and get it started on the magazine rejection cycle as soon as possible. I’ll keep you, dear reader, updated as things unfold.
And now for something completely different. Where “ILYAMY” was straight-up SF drama and somewhat dark-ish, this new tale is a bit of frothy fun (at least my definition of it). “Bumped” is an old-school adventure yarn. Were I forced to pigeon-hole it, I’d classify it as a mad-scientist romance / gadget caper. If that’s your thing (and how could it NOT be?), I think you’ll get a kick out of it. It had a little-seen previous version on Baen’s Bar, but I excised about 2000 words and punched it up quite a bit. It’s now a good bit funner.
As with the last short story in progress, this’ll be up for a couple of weeks and then it will vanish from the internets in order to find its way to a paying market.
Let me know what you think! Happy Reading!!
