For those of you who think I've given up writing: I have posted a new story at asstr.org called "Plaything." I can't post it or link to it at SOL, for reasons that will be obvious, but I do want to notify my regular readers here. It's still on the "recents" page at that site and should be easy to find. My editor, who never fails to tell me when he doesn't like something, told me it was "probably the finest stroke story I have ever read." So who needs scores?
