The Other Iron River, and Other Stories -- fantasy stories now at Smashwords

Hi there.

My three short stories, previously available only as separate titles at the Amazon Kindle store, are now available in a single ebook through the Kindle Store and Smashwords.

"The Other Iron River, and Other Stories" includes:

"Ghost Writer":
All libraries are haunted -- the spirits of men and women long dead live on there, in the words they wrote, in the work that they poured their lives into creating. They survive through the books they put on paper. But what of the books they didn't live long enough to write? The books unfinished? The books that might have been? Bob has inherited his grandfather's house, and with it his grandfather's life work -- his library, a library that is haunted in a way Bob would never have imagined...
(This story is available separately as a free download at Smashwords.
Link: Ghost Writer


"Acts of Faith":
The dead walk, and feed on the living, and survivors try to find safe places to ride out the zombie plague. But there are other concerns beyond individual survival: can the world be rebuilt -- can the store of knowledge be preserved for the future? One man is trying to choose what needs to be carried away from the library in which he hides, knowing he can't carry enough, and knowing that he may not find survivors at all before he falls prey to the living dead. Trying to preserve some record of the past is an act of faith, and in the day of the zombie acts of faith can be fatal...

"The Other Iron River":
The town of Iron River is slowly fading away, declining as its younger people move away and the older ones die. But there is another Iron River -- the town as it was a century ago. And if you're the right kind, you can step back into yesterday, and stay. Paul and Beth are the right kind, but is leaving their own time really what they want?

Contemporary fantasy with a Twilight Zone feel.


These stories have been available separately at the Kindle store for 99 cents each; this combined edition, DRM-free and a little over 11,000 words, contains all three stories and sells at Smashwords and the Kindle store for 99 cents.
Give it a look if you get a chance; hope you'll enjoy it.

Bests to all,

Looking for reviews for "The Other Iron River, and Other Stories" and two others
Hi there. I've got three titles on Smashwords and would be interested in seeing comments from reviewers. One of the three, "Ghost Writer," is free. Coupons are available for the other two. They are: "The Point" (coupon code NL93T) and "The Other Iron River, and Other Stories" (coupon code QP57C). The coupons are good for 100% of the purchase price, and they'll be good until June 7. If you download, please post your review at Smashwords of course, but also at Amazon's Kindle store and Goodreads, and any other ebook retailer you'd like. Naturally, good reviews are preferred, but if the review's not favorable so be it. Just give it to me straight. I can take it. I think. Maybe.

Thanks in advance, and bests to all.

The Other Iron River, and Other Stories, a collection of short stories (mostly ghost, fantasy & horror), has just been greatly expanded. The original ebook contained three stories -- it now has fifteen stories, three of which are new to this edition. If you're one of those who'd already bought it, Amazon should have sent you an email regarding the update. If you haven't already bought it, now's the time. The Other Iron River is still priced at 99 cents, but the price will be raised to 2.99 some time on Saturday March 8, so grab it while it's cheap.

It's a Kindle exclusive, but it's DRM-free. And here's the Amazon Kindle store link:

I like to think that some of these have a nice Jack Finney/Twilight Zone feel to them. Give the collection a look if you get a chance.
