    Fiction Week: New York Hold ’em

    I am on a plane to London, where I will be doing a signing from 6-7pm this evening at The Forbidden Planet! I hope to see some of you there! And that means today’s story is getting posted early, and tomorrow’s will probably be late, ’cause I don’t get back to Ireland until mid-afternoon.

    All right, all right, we’re starting to get to what you all really wanted in the first place, right? A story of the Old Races, just for you. :)

    Fiction Week: Previously, on Take A Chance…

    While I was considering what to write for Fiction Week, Ted suggested a Chance prequel. I could write it as news reports, he suggested, and that sounded like a pretty good idea.

    Except when I sat down to do the job, it came out in comic script form. I decided it leave it that way for several reasons: one, it was clearly the natural format for a Chance story. Two, I thought perhaps a few people would be interested in seeing the basic structure I use in writing a comic script. Three, I thought what the hell, maybe somebody’ll want to draw it, and if I get good enough material, I’ll see if I can add it into one of the graphic novels at some point, as a DVD extra. So if you’re an artist or know one, please feel free to consider this an audition script!

    Fiction Week: Glasslands

    This is the prequel to a television series idea I’d like to pitch someday. (Other people have hobbies. I apparently have an unending obsession with creating more work for myself all the time.) Enjoy!

    Internet Busking & Fiction Week

    It’s Internet Busking & Fiction Week at mizkit.com. Over the next five days, I’ll be posting short stories I’ve written recently.

    Now, as it is (with apologies to Jane Austen) a truth universally acknowledged that a mid-list author in possession of good reviews must be in want of an income, if you enjoy the stories and have it to spare, I would be delighted if you wanted to send a few quid (as they say here) my way. You can use open@mizkit.com as a Paypal address. There is, though, no obligation at all, and mostly I hope you enjoy the stories.

    This first story was written for my nephew, and is latest in the Tales from Gryphon Beach.
