It wasn't Hans' place to worry about merchants, but now bandits were stealing bread he'd just baked. The craftsmen and traders of Foxtrail Village got together at the Crossroads Inn to argue one morning, about what to do. They agreed to start being more careful about warning and guarding trade wagons. But they didn't have much of a plan if the robbers struck again. Hans was no fighter, so he said, "Has anyone tried asking the wizard?" Everybody took a drink. "Come on," Hans said. "He's never hurt us." "Then you should ask 'im," said Elias, the miller who Hans had to gamble with too often. A chorus of agreement went up. "I have a shop to te

Loot Crates

Dave got home from an exhausting work week to find a trio of sturdy plastic crates at his apartment doorstep. He hadn't ordered anything, but the packing slip taped to it had his name. The maker's logo was smudged, above a note that said "A gift for you! Please share it. The first one you open is yours." Dave looked the three white boxes over. Identical, and probably worth significant money just as luggage. Who would've sent him these? He undid the clasps on the labeled crate and peered inside to find a costume head smiling up at him. It was a finely made skunk design, blue-eyed with white hair atop black fur. Dave pulled it out and marvele

Most of the text here is output from the "AI Dungeon" system by Nathan Whitmore using the GPT-2 AI algorithm. So this is mostly not my text, but it's something that I goaded the AI into creating. Here are two outputs I got before the system's popularity melted its servers. Adventure 1: The Portal You are Micona, a wizard living in the kingdom of Larion. You have a staff and a spellbook. You finish your long journey and finally arrive at the ruin you've been looking for. You look around and see that it's not much different than when you left it.

Otter Expedition Marina

Dave was partly transformed, due to some unusual radiation exposure, but it meant getting a cash settlement from Suncoast Energy. And a business that'd take advantage of his ottery new body, if he were willing to change more than the parts that'd been affected so far. The exec shook Dave's fuzzy hand. "You'll keep quiet until we're ready to unveil the tech? All right then. We'll finish your exposure, and get you your check." They put Dave in a room with a lead box, and awkwardly shielded his head, shoulders and arm by dunking him upside-down, held by a robot arm. Then, a second arm brought the weirdly radioactive rod into the room. Dave di

The Dream Of Aveire - Episode 1

The Crew of the World Hani lay back amid purple grass she'd helped design, and stared up at a city like stars hanging overhead. She felt she was in a vast hammock since the land at her head and feet curved gently upward. Though she looked relaxed, she'd been trying to judge what the more senior gardeners had asked her: how well did the meadow fit in with the aesthetics of the flame-hued forest of humming lizards that surrounded it? She couldn't tell whether her teachers were trying to make a subtle point about artistry, or pranking her, because she felt like she should be doing more. A rustle of branches caught her ears, and she sat up in t

2040 - Sunset's Worst Offense

The flying canoe was out of control, but still spaceworthy. Sunset the Coyote was strapped into the copilot seat while a rat-woman named Pip struggled to right the improvised ship and head for the space station's airlock rather than a random part of its hull. "Brace for impact!" she said, firing several thrusters to aim them backwards and slow down. Nothing responded quite right, and Sunset looked over the various gauges without much hope of fixing them. Not that he wanted anyone to detect the little modifications he'd made. The canoe slammed backwards into the spherical space station stern-first, cracking through the hull. The whole craft

He scooped globs of macaroni for a line of homeless people who wouldn't meet his eyes or look toward the sunny patio. "They know we're stuck here," said the weatherbeaten man serving beans next to him. The man shouldn't have been working today, what with the liquor on his breath, but he'd muttered about parole conditions. Paul snapped out of a daydream about building castles and armor.

My Bio
I'm an independent writer, trying to break into real commercial success. Check out my books on Amazon including "Crafter's Passion" and "The Digital Coyote".

I write science fiction and fantasy, with a lot of interest in robots, AI, transhumanism and transformation, with some silliness. I most want to write upbeat, pro-freedom stories without being preachy or straying too far from real science. Lately I've also written for the "LitRPG" or "GameLit" genre, which involves game-like elements and virtual reality.

New Novel: Virtual Horizon

New Novel: Virtual Horizon

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B086BBLJL9 "Virtual Horizon" is an upbeat, near-future science fiction novel about two friends separated by a world-changing game. One wakes up in a new body in a virtual fantasy world, and the other runs off to be a mad scientist on a floating ocean colony. Can they work together across the real and virtual worlds? This is a setting about freedom, transformation, and adventure, with a major role for AI characters. If you've read my early novel "Thousand Tales: How We Won the Game", this one will look familiar. I took it apart into two books. "Thousand Tales: Side Quests" is all the side-stories from that, plus a

A LitRPG adventure of a girl revived inside a game world, where she explores the virtual stars. Free copies available! Request code for US or UK. This is part of the Thousand Tales setting, but no knowledge of it is needed. "Queen of Nowhere" is more rules-centric than most of the series, paying attention to specific stats. I had fun showing a part of the game world I hadn't shown much, while letting the MC interact with characters from other books who have plotlines of their own
