Secret Fiction from The Ancient Archives...
An old, old short story no one's seen before, unearthed from the Deep Archives
Hello my wonderful people who paid real Earth Moneys toward this Substack!
I’ve decided that I’ll post something here every time a new person buys a subscription (limited to once per day lol, if 20 people sign up on the same day I can’t gin up 20 posts, I’m not MADE OF WORDS except when I AM). You all deserve something cool for your hard-earned cash while I decide what to use the paid tier for here. (I do have a possible idea I’m toying with…but I don’t want to say until I see how the excerpt of the idea is received over on Patreon before I commit or bin it for the other idea banging around my head. MYSTERIOSO. Either way, in January Something Awesome will start here, swearsies.)
So I went into my hard drive and a folder called CatOps, which has everything I’ve ever written saved in it, even projects that failed to launch, Bits and Pieces that either never manifested into a full story/book or did, but only in some crazy limited edition thing or tiny micro-press and never included in collections or anthologies or what-have-you.
And that’s what this one is!
