Pay me $250 and I'll give away a short science fiction story, to everyone, forever. Pay me more and get two other stories too!

If I get the money, you get the story.

Thanks to generous support, there's already a healthy fiction library at...

http://www.gregstolze.com/fiction_library/

...where you can examine my already free works and see if you want to expand their number.  TRANSMIT most strongly resembles Emily Speaks, in its communication focus if nothing else.  The Turning of the Time shares a setting with 7 and 7, though no characters.  (The Turning of the Time is a fairly claustrophobic little piece.)  As for Unripe Fruit, it's a bit like The Doom of Swords, not only because they're both low fantasy, but in their focus on unfortunate sexual misunderstandings. That last link's to a zipped MP3, by the way.

The listed cash goal is $250 for TRANSMIT though, of course, I'd like more and hope I'm not alone in that. To liberate The Turning of the Time, we'll have to get the funds up to $650. The third story, Unripe Fruit, gets unlocked at $1,370. 

Any questions?  Just ask.  Can't wait to start recording these podcasts!

    Pledge $2 and get a podcast of me reading the story "TRANSMIT," probably striking a tone somewhere between somber and smart-alec.

    USA ONLY. I'll sign and send you a linocut print of the opening paragraph for "The Turning of the Time." Little weird if that doesn't clear, but life's a little weird too.

    THE AUTHOR CHAT. I'll level with you: These have been delightful so far, so I'm hoping I get all five takers. If you're overseas, however, ONLY pledge for this if you're on Skype or G+ with chat. I can't pay for overseas long distance!
