Short stories for April
For the first three months of this year, I promoted my three short story anthologies. But since I’ve run out of them, this month I’ll be promoting four of my short stories.
Like most people, Jason Fisher wanted to make the world a better place. But he doubted he would ever have the chance to make much of a mark. Then a “woman” came to him, asking his help to save humanity by threatening it.
“An Ounce of Prevention” is available on Nook for $0.99.
“The Price to Pay” is a flash fiction story dealing with a consequence of detecting an alien signal.
“The Price to Pay” is – ironically – free on Smashwords.
“Rise” is a stand alone story set in Stephen L. Thompson’s Human Republic Universe. The story follows some of the events after the tragic deaths of the colonists in a small colony in a distant star system.
“Rise” is available on Kindle for $0.99.
“Enigma” is set in a larger universe, and consists of two parts. Part I follows Carlos Molina, a maintenance man at a comet mining facility. He is sent out to fix a problem with one of the automated miners. In the process, he discovers a cube embedded in the comet’s nucleus.
Part II is set five years later and follows Doctor Susan Black, Director of Cube Studies. With the upcoming anniversary of the discovery of the Molina Cube, she is deluged by news requests for comments. During this she gives an interview to a student from her alma mater concerning the nature of the Cube.
When we do travel into space, we will discover many things we will never be able to explain. We need to learn how to accept that basic fact.
“Enigma” is $0.99 on Kindle.
