SHORT STORIES

Too Blue Cover

Too Blue

A satirical comment on prejudice. And it is very short — about a page and a half. I wanted to make this story free, but I only half succeeded. It’s free at Smashwords, but I discovered that Amazon has a bottom limit of 99 cents. Take your pick! 

 

 

Ra's Revenge CoverRa’s Revenge

Angus MacDonald loves his garden, but not the cats that dig holes in it. In the process of devising deterrents for cats, his wife tells him the facts about and the history of the feline race. Who will win this territorial battle — Angus or a cat that might indeed be a descendant of the Great Cat Ra?

It’s available at Smashwords for free, and at Amazon for 99 cents.

 

A Proposal of MarriageA Proposal of Marriage

No, it’s not romance. It might be called science fiction. Or magic realism. Or are those both the same thing? You decide! The plot? Assassination and marriage dominate a conversation around the bridge table on a sultry summer afternoon.

Available at Smashwords free, or Amazon 99 cents.
