The Princess just knows it. Something important, something she can’t think of. With robot caretakers in tow she goes in search through the extensive royal gardens, determined to continue until it’s found.

No matter how deep into the gardens the search takes her.

A 3900 word science fiction fairy tale short story. This edition includes the complete BONUS story, “Gaslight Tea Party” by Alex Vaugn.

This is a different sort of story for me, but a fun one. It started with the prompt of “A Princess, A Lizard, and a Boatman” and then exploded when I title generator I designed popped up with the title of “Bowl the Lizard.” Yeah, it doesn’t take much to inspire me anymore. Tis the life of being a writer. 😛

Everyone has their breaking point and Alfonso just found his…

A series of layoffs forces starship pilot Alfonso Wickham to make a shuttle deliver with no help other than the accompanying ‘efficiency expert’ who is watching his every move. He can’t do anything right, and the delivery quickly goes from bad to worse when local salvagers view his cargo as a quick easy score.

They don’t know they are messing with a man who has nothing left to lose.

Yes, a new novelette. It was intended to be a companion piece to “The Art of Negotiation” but ended up a little long, so it has been released on its own. It is, however, set in the same universe, but does not share any characters. Another of the Forward Motion May “Story-A-Day” short stories, and I think it came out fun. Most working people can sympathize with reaching a breaking point.

I guess I’ll have to try to write a shorter work to pair with “The Art of Negotiation.” Oh darn, more writing. How horribly wonderful. 😛
