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!
