Free Short Stories

I don’t know about you, but I remain kind of excited that book #3 in the Avery Cates series, The Eternal Prison, is out. So I’m gonna continue to party like it’s 1999 here. Towards that end I’ve posted two short stories set in the novels’ universe over at The stories are both free to read and distribute as long as my copyright statement is retained.

The story “Oldest Bastard on the Block” was tweeted last week over at  The story “This Was Education” hasn’t been officially released anywhere before, although some folks will recognize it and chuckle conspiratorially under their breath. Both are set somewhere between The Electric Church and The Digital Plague, with OBB being first in sequence, though they’re not directly related to each other.

Surf on over and enjoy! Comments and feedback very welcome.

    These were awesome! I really enjoyed “This is education” because Glee was such a cool character in The Digital Plague. “Oldest Bastard on the Block” was cool, too (kind of reminiscent of the very first scene in The Electric Church).

    Thanks for sharing these for free with us 🙂
