Just put up three stories from A Coming Cold.

The Healer of Union Square was posted a few months ago.

Costume Party was spawned from a Halloween party I went to this year mixed with a little Lovecraft inspiration.

Just the Other Day is a short that tries to capture the aesthetic of New York in late fall.

Each of the stories has a comment section. Make use of it! Let me hear your comments! All of these stories are works in progress and any insight helps. I experimented with a wide variety of styles for the collection. Some of it might work. Other stuff probably doesn’t. Let me know.

A Coming Cold

Right now I’m putting the finishing touches on a collection of short stories I started working on for NaNoWriMo 2007.  It’s titled A Coming Cold and contains twelve short stories set in New York City during the late autumn.  I’m still debating what to do with them, whether I want to keep them bundled and publish them via Lulu, or send them out individually to various zines.  Most of them are “offbeat literary” style and wouldn’t fit in the lit mags I’ve submitted to in the past.

I’m thinking I’d like to set up a custom page here on daydalus to post and accept comments for the stories.  They’re all in various states of being “done” and any comments would be awesome.

Be on the lookout for some new stories in the near future…
