Vanity publishing! Yes, I have just done it! I've been slinging around a pile of short stories at poor, unsuspecting publishers for years. Regretfully, they were on to me and I've never had anything published. Well, not anymore!
I stitched together the best ones (and a couple of odd poems) and come up with 90 whole pages of content. If you act now, you can get all of this in a pdf for free. Okay, if you act in a hundred years, you still can get it all for free in a pdf. This is really just an excuse to bundle up all my old work so I can start fresh in this new decade. I really enjoy them, but it's time to go send them to human lands where they can meet a wife and have children.
The cover has absolutely nothing to do with the stories. You may recognize the little red dude. Yeah. He's up there growling too. Hey - I bought the picture - I'm going to use the picture.
I also made a hard copy version available. That's really just so I can print out some copies for the family. If you really want to buy it - go ahead - but I warn you - I haven't even seen a copy and have no idea if it looks horrific or not. I did edit and proof the actual contents over the last few years - so that should be halfway decent. But how the printed bit looks - no idea.
