Fractured Fragment Friday: Can Aaron Walker Save His Town from Their Alien Overlords by “Riding the Devil”?

“Riding the Devil” is a science fiction / fantasy story with a western steampunk flavor. The story’s seed was a dream my significant one shared with me, saying “you should write a story from this.” Of course, what I wrote bore no resemblance to her dream as far as she’s concerned (no matter how much … Continue reading

Fractured Fragment Friday: Egomaniacal Food Critic Meets His Match and Is Treated to the Revenge of “A Dish Best Served”

Fractured Fragment Friday: Detective Jimmy Delaney Proves Murder and Mind Control Aren’t “The Right Idea”

This week we visit “The Right Idea” – Detective Jimmy Delaney story #3. I wrote “In a Flash” as a standalone short story, and thought that was it – but then Jimmy said “Hey, what about this other case, and “Mixed Signals” came to be. But once I let Jimmy in he wouldn’t go away. … Continue reading

Detective Jimmy Delaney is Fired, Then Framed for Murder in “Mixed Signals”

This week we visit the second of my Detective Jimmy Delaney stories: “Mixed Signals.” As I’ve said before, I never intended to write a SERIES of Detective Jimmy Delaney stories. I had written “In a Flash” as a standalone short story. I expected it to remain that way, but something about Jimmy just stuck with … Continue reading
