No, dear, not like "a pair o'"; that's different.
Some fraction of my creative output is shorter in scope — almost always when I specifically push myself to make it so. Accordingly, what you see here is all less than around 5,000 words, and some of them are substantially shorter. Short stories are a genre that I like a great deal, and my favourite science fiction is short (Harlan Ellison in particular, whose equal I aspire to but never shall be).

Like with my novels and novellas, nearly everything here involves furry characters — animal-people, in other words. I am frequently asked "hey, why don't you rewrite them with human beings?"e; and the answer is because I just don't like writing about people very much. Sorry folks.

    Christmas, in the trenches of a conflict somewhere about the early 20th century, brings something that might be a miracle.
