All stories are also available as a single file at:

Out of Reach

Double Beds: Here in Australia we have three sizes of double beds - Standard double bed, Queen size double bed, and King size double bed. In general, we call all of them a double bed, except when ordering a new mattress or sheet for them.

Modern Day Witch Hunt

New short book of 15,000 words going up in two chapters. This is not a fiction story, sadly. But it will explain some of the issues I've had over the last 12 months, and why there are delays on many of the sequels I was working on. This is not over, yet. I'll update the the story when it is appropriate to do so.

The Contagion

Anti-biotics: This term is used in two ways. One is in regards to the commercial products for sale, these are designed to target specific biological infections, and not a virus. In general scientific research anti-biotics is used to refer to any chemical or biological agent used to fight or destroy something biological, and includes more than the commercial formulas just mentioned. This wider use of the term is what I have in the story.

Cheyenne Mountain Complex: The facility entrance is part way up a high mountain and visible from a number of areas where a line of sight is available over a lower ridge and along the roadway. Access is along Norad Road and Google Maps shows Norad Road takes a large hook left up through a valley before it reaches the lower car-park for the facility and then continues along the valley to the upper car-park at the top of a steep slope. The valley where the road takes that major curve is a good spot to set up a barricade, and what I refer to.
