Tessellations (Tales from the Miracle Season 1.4) is now available!

          So, I’ve been a bit of a bad author of late.  The boyfriend and I were off to C2E2, and the time it took to prep and decompress from that trip has delayed the very last of this first series of Upshots.  Also included in that delay, apparently, was the announcement here at LateNightStirFry that Tessellations (Tales from the Miracle Season 1.4) went online at WelcometoSanKeros.com two whole weeks ago! Holy Cow! See what I mean? Bad author, no biscuit.

          Several folks have asked what the throughput is for these Upshots.  The short answer is that there isn’t any.  They aren’t designed to be connected.  These shortest of short stories are just snapshots into the lives of people we’ve seen before, or meeting for the first time, that are affected by the ripples cast out by the events in Nabiscoding in the summer of 1991 (which you can read ALL about in Open Your Eyes.)  All I can say is that all of this will be more fully explored as this project continues.

The last Upshot of this cycle is called “Lemons”, and it brings the world of San Keros into proper sequence with the larger story that will unfold this summer.  That title should go up by midweek, and it’s my hope we’ll launch the summer project the first week of June.

The City of Dreams has opened its doors…now what’s left is up to you.

Open Your Eyes: A Tale from the Miracle Season

I’m proud to announce that my first web-based large scale fiction project has gone live! WelcomeToSanKeros.com is the online hub for Tales from the Miracle Season, an interlocking web of short stories, ficlets, novellas, and more.  The first story, Open Your Eyes, is a serial that will be updated weekly alongside biographical and geographical entries of the city of San Keros and its environs.  As you read, the city will open up before you, the website a living document that expands and fills in gaps between tales.  Open Your Eyes will be a story of 12 parts, with the next story in the cycle announced and commencing upon its completion.  I hope you’ll give this story a chance.  It’s my most personal story to date, and it sets the stage for everything that will follow.

You’ll continue to find all other written work–past and future–not affiliated with Tales from the Miracle Season here at latenightstirfry.com . The Season of the Story is now.
