Sometimes I write enough to put out a collection. Sometimes I use a pen name, Phil Strobe. Here are the e-books.
The Wedding of the Princess-King and Other Stories
A fairy tale for people in a fairy tale world. A moon mission with a sinister secret. A tax collector comes face to face with powers he doesn’t understand while investigating a celestial incident. The three stories in this collection will take you to imagined lands where people trying to get on with their lives grapple with unexpected forces. This collection contains the first appearances of these stories: “The Wedding of the Princess-King,” “Take the Moon at Full, Now She’s Changed,” and “Earthfall.”
Cover by Simon Brom. E-pub. or Kindle.
The World is Bigger than an Ell
Reality and meaning come together in the life of one man. As they spiral around each other, Darrin looks deeper into his life and the world around him, and is challenged by what he sees.
Darrin no longer sees things, but rather the shaped descriptions of things in this short story. This edition also contains two bonus items, “Because Love Resists Narrative,” a villanelle, and “Meet Ashley’s Neighbor,” a short-short episode in a serial character sketch.
