PARADOX – A Short Science Fiction AdventureFREE at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple iTunes, Kobo, and everywhere eBooks are sold.
DESCRIPTION: Ted volunteered for the mission because, after all, it was just a routine trip to Mars. What could possibly go wrong?
In the deepest, darkest reaches of space, one must fill the vacuum, the void, the emptiness. Yet do we humans have the “psychological stuff” for deep space travel? If not, we may end up like Ted.
DEVANE’S REALITY – A Short Psychological ThrillerFREE at Barnes and Noble, Apple iTunes, Kobo, Smashwords, and most places eBooks are sold (still $0.99 at Amazon, though I hope it will be free there soon).
DESCRIPTION: We humans do not suffer solitude well. I long for contact—any contact. I yearn to meet a one-legged, one-armed, one-eyed, elderly gypsy woman who spends every waking minute singing show tunes with a voice like a howler monkey undergoing torture.
How does one cope with complete and utter loneliness? Imagine living in a world occupied by one – not another living creature. How could such a thing be possible? Doesn’t matter. What matters is how Lawrence Steven Devane reacts when plunged into precisely this situation.
WELL-SUITED SENTRY – A Short Horror StoryFREE at Barnes and Noble, Apple iTunes, Kobo, Smashwords, and most places eBooks are sold (still $0.99 at Amazon, though I hope it will be free there soon).
DESCRIPTION: The prison rose out of the cornfields, a concrete and steel monstrosity about as likely in this serene setting as an elephant in an igloo. The sentry couldn’t help but smile at the thought. With no one else to amuse him, to distract him, to help push his days contentedly forward, he often amused himself in such ways.
‘I’ve done my work too well,’ he thought. ‘Opportunities to spill blood are so rare these days.’
This prison sentry is unlike any other. You don’t want to cross him. Better that you should remain in your cell, follow the rules, and never get on his bad side. Transgression comes at far too high a price.
