Green Crystal Stories Update

A quick news item for my readers: Today was a free day—a day off and away from my 9-to-5 job—so I spent most of it redesigning the cover of my e-book, Green Crystal Stories. I’m making changes to some of the stories that appeared in the last volume, and I’m adding new ones, including some

Hellhounds Unpublished, Chapter 4

A fun piece of writing that my friend Lola and I wrote many years ago for my Night of the Hell Hounds story I started in 1999. This cliffhanger never made it into the published short story. Ashley started to stand, uncertain of where to look first, when one of Jerry’s beefy hands clutched her

Original Ending of Night of the Hellhounds

I recently found this on a backup floppy disk, lol. My friend Lola and I wrote this in 2001 for a story I started way back in 1974. Our ending went through many manifestations before we scrapped the project. Ashley stood, uncertain of where to look first, when one of Jerry’s beefy hands clutched her

The Provider

A short story penned by my friend Lola and me. We co-authored stories on the Internet. A creepy arson tale for Halloween! “He’s out there,” my mother said at the front window. “DID YOU HEAR ME?” She rushed from the front window and snatched her cell phone from the dining room table. Her hand trembled

The Nurse and the Magic Ointment

An odd tale penned by my friend Lola and me. Based on a story Lola read when she was a child, this is her version with my two cents thrown in. Once upon a time an unemployed nurse lived in a small village inside New York City, and though she had no family except a

Waiting

A quirky short story penned by my friend Lola and me, November 1999. Lola and I co-authored a handful of stories on the Internet while we were members of an online writing group. Freshly shaved Robert Allen rose up swinging barbells at those fiercely mad occupants of the Union Gym down at Union Square next to
