This week’s Smashwords coupon is for “My Brother’s Keeper”:
What would you be willing to do to save a soul from oblivion? Abduction? Possession? Murder?
A space traveler lands on a primitive planet, and contends with the backwards philosophy of some brown-robed brethren as he tries to rescue his own brother’s spirit.
I think this one may have started with the title, and then grew into a combination of possession, mind control, medieval monks, the afterlife, and aliens (I know – nothing out of the ordinary there – just the usual stuff I go through every day.) My memory isn’t that good (at least it’s still my own), and having written over 60 short stories in the last few years, I confess that some of them have disappeared into the fog. Not this one – I remember it distinctly, especially the exorcism of Brother Isaiah, and I have a particular fondness for the part where… well, you’ll have to read it for yourself.
Use coupon code QB72Q to get 67% off the cover price at Smashwords (that’s only 99-cents – such a deal!) – it’s good until May 21st. Here’s the link:
“My Brother’s Keeper” is also available in my 4th collection – Still Even More Things I Could Get OUT OF MY MIND.
