I've collected together my science fiction short stories from my website (bar
You Gotta UseProtection
, which has far too much adult content to be included in a collection for generalrelease) into this ebook to make them more accessible to the public.Now I'll be blatantly honesthere, I hope, after reading these, you'll decide to buy my novels.This isn't a scam. I swear — honest to whatever-god-you-believe-in — it's a try-before-you-buy scheme. Where else but on the internet can you get hold of samples of an author'swork and his writing style(s) for free to judge if you'd like to read their novels, rather than after you've dished out a pile of doe only to find out that the promising story on that first page fizzlesout to disappointment at the end. Believe me, I've been in that boat.So, as an unpublished author, what better way to advertise my wares.And don't think that, just because I'm unpublished, my stuff is crap. Some great writersonly got started after self-publishing their novels — look at Cory Doctorow — so who knows?And for $US3 for an ebook, even if you buy one of my novels and don't like it, you haven't reallyhurt your hip pocket.But if you don't decide to buy, then that's fine. I know I can't please everybody. However,if you do like one or more of my stories, please, tell as many people as you can and give them acopy of this file, or even better, tell them where they can download it from. That way I can getan idea of how many people I'm reaching.
