Fireside Magazine is almost funded. As of this particular moment it’s at $5139.00 out of $6K and there are 37 hours to go.
If they raise that last $861.00 then there’s going to be one more issue of fantastic fiction by Jake Kerr, Kat Howard, Damien Walters Grintalis, a comic by Steven Walker and Brian White and a cover by artist Galen Dara.
Oh, and me.
And that’s where things get kind of interesting for me.
See, the short story I’ve written is… not my usual fare.
It’s not crime. It’s certainly not noir. There is no swearing. There is little violence. It’s, dare I say, positive?
It’s a ghost story. On a starship. With George Gershwin.
Yes, THAT George Gershwin.
If this story gets out then any possibility of my being known as some hard-boiled, tough as nails, noir writer goes pretty much down the shitter.
So if you help fund this issue you will be responsible for helping destroy my career. Won’t that be fun?
I think it’d be fun. That’s why I did it.
So, if you have a hankering to see what kind of weirdness I can write when I’m not shrieking obscenities at the sky and waving my junk around like a Tourette’s suffering monkey, consider tossing a couple bucks at the project.
It might not be my usual fare, but I think you might like it.
