Call it the season finale or the end of the 2nd-to-last volume: here’s Chapter 20: Decisions, the climax of Safe as Houses Volume III: Homes. The final volume of Safe as Houses will begin in January.
Now I’m going to take a few weeks to work on other projects. Here’s the first of them: The Sky is Made of Stone is a hard science fiction short story with an idea I don’t think I’ve seen anywhere else. When Mac hears that an asteroid is approaching his world, he goes out to catch it with his bare hands. I’m pretty sure I got all the math and science right, but feel free to pick any holes you find.
You can also listen to Safe as Houses as a podcast. Episode 11 of the podcast is now live. Listen to it here. Or subscribe to it on ITunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/
Where to Start
If you’re checking my stories out for the first time, the Table of Contents lists all the stories in their proper order. Or you can just plunge in with the first story in the series, Safe as Houses. You can also click here for a quick synopsis of the story so far. Or if you want something really touching and don’t mind spoilers, read my favorite episode. Here’s another favorite episode, exciting and action packed with a crazy surprise twist at the end (followed up on in an amusing way here.)
If you prefer to hear a story rather than read it, you can subscribe to my podcast on ITunes. The podcast is about two volumes behind the written version. (If you’d like to check it out before subscribing, all the episodes are listed here and the first episode is here.
When you finish a chapter, you’ll see a line of buttons that you can use to share that chapter on Facebook, Twitter and several other places. So if you like what you read, let other people read it too! Also, please consider voting for “Safe as Houses” at TopWebFiction.com. And here’s a link to the glowing 4.5-star review of my story on webfictionguide.com.
Our lives have mature content. So do my stories. They’re not erotica but sex, violence and strong language shows up if truly part of the story. You might read 20 pages without a single f-word or naked buttock, then find yourself in a firestorm of passion.
I also publish articles from time to time on various topics. Here’s a list of all the current stuff.
