Lee-Lack’s Gold and Other Stories

It has been some time since my last post here. There’s a reason for that. I’ve had pneumonia. It takes your breath away. Not in the usual, figurative sense, but quite literally. It also sucks the joy of life out of you. I’d like to say it’s all behind me, but the truth is that […]

Stories on the Go is an anthology of 101 Very Short Stories by 101 Authors. The idea was launched by Hugh Howey of WOOL-fame on Kboards, a forum for kindle readers with an active — well, turbulent — community of indie writers.
