A question of content

I went out for dinner with ksumnersmith last night and during the course of conversation, most of which involved a lot of structure neep (because I really, really, really enjoy writing process discussions, to the point of complete over-focus which would bore almost any other writer out of their mind), she mentioned that there is nothing of my written work available on-line. This has come up, for her, because when she talks about my work with other people, she has nothing to point them at.

This would be because I am a dinosaur.

She strongly suggested that I put up at least a few .pdfs of my shorter work someplace where readers could actually get to it, to get some idea of what my writing is like. But my short fiction isn't really like my novel-length fiction. I think. I'm possibly not the best judge of this.

Because MeishaMerlin closed its doors, the collection that would have been published by them is not going to be published by them. I haven't actually tried to sell the collection anywhere else; I sort of didn't try to sell the collection to MM, either (Steve asked).

So.

I'm asking for suggestions of possible short story downloads, because it seems reasonable to put a few of them up on the not-very-much-used website. It's also been suggested elsewhere that I put up a chapter or two of previous novels.

Er. Delurking to put in a word for the Black Ospreys story from Women of War.
And to tell you that while drinking in the bar at a WFC and talking to Bill Schaefer of Subterranean Press, I nearly tried to mention to him that a limited edition of the Allasakar stories , in one volume, would be the height of awesome. I wasn't quite drunk enough though.

LOL! Be drunker next time :D.

Ummm, no, wait, that's probably not the entirely professional thing to say.

... but then again, it's me o.o
