I’ve made some interesting additions and changes on my blog. My short story Tracking Blackheart Bart has finally been published in an anthology Reach for the Sky published by Rogue Blades Entertainment. Like the other stories in the anthology, it is a science fiction western set in the late 1800’s. I don’t have a copy of the story up on the blog yet (it will be there in January). If you have a Kindle, I can send you a Kindle file of the book containing the story.
I just did a podcast with John Hoda who is a Private Investigator and writer of thrillers. His podcasts are interviews with other PI’s and writers of detective and thriller novels. If you want to listen to the podcast it is number 114 and you can find it at: https://www.johnhoda.com/podcast-my-favorite-detective-stories/ If you are a detective story reader or writer, you may find other of his podcasts fascinating listening.
If you look on Published Stories on my blog, you’ll find nine stories described. Seven of these can be found by a simple click or two. I’ve just added Finishing Off Gammie, a story that was published by Mystery Weekly over a year ago. The two stories not on-line are Tracking Blackheart Bart (see No. 1 above) and Never Kidnap a Crime Novelist.
I’ve added the third and final section to the Compatibility story under the Writing a Story section. These three sections walk you through a short story with a built-in discussion that looks at how such a story might be constructed and, at the end, asks you to think about how the story might be ended or extended. If you’ve read the 1st and 2nd sections, the 3rd section is now on the blog.
Enjoy, Stan Dryer
