I previously mentioned that the Siege of Sarajevo, from April 5, 1992 to February 29, 1996, was a backdrop for a story I wanted to tell, and I found the characters that I wanted to talk abt in this article that appeared in the New York Daily News on July 28, 1991, the day after my birthday. And then the Siege of Sarajevo began the next year, and it went on and on and on, and I realized I wanted to tell a story abt the kids in the newspaper as refugee kids in a US city torn down and worn down by internecine civil war.
I recently recorded this zombie broadcast off a live line discovered in the ruins of the telephone switchboard room of a collapsed hotel in the abandoned mining town of Electrograd, Washington.
I have an old short story, a very short short story, newly released as an e-short story, He Has A Face Like A Steel Trap. It is now available for free, in all file formats – .epub, .mobi, .rtf, .pdf etc) via Smashwords. As well as from individual online books stores.
You can watch the promotional video trailer I made for He Has A Face Like A Steel Trap here.
(For files from Smashwords you’ll have to “side-load” them into your ereader or mobile device/phone ereading app. You can install any number of free stand-alone ereading software on your computer and just read it there , as well.)
(I have no idea why B&N did not add the book cover?)
Kobo (This story has not been added to the Kobo store yet, but you can download an .epub version from Smashwords and side-load it into you Kobo reader)
Kindle - I’m giving my short stories away for FREE, but Amazon wants to charge $.99 (If you want to spend money on me at Amazon, buy a copy of my novel No Aloha for your Kindle).

Those with a Kindle can now get my short story, Hypnotizing Chickens, for free at Amazon.com
The reading is from 1999 and the video is from 2012. Videographic help from KF.
Just recently Smashwords set up a new system for libraries to acquire digital copies of books and short stories from Smashwords. And I am glad to say somewhere in the United States there are six copies of Hypnotizing Chickens and two copies of The Carnage Motel in a library/libraries catalogue!
