To me the only point of novellas, novelettes, or short stories is to do something new, try out a concept, have a little bit of fun without getting too serious or wasting too much time if it doesn't quite work. I'm trying to release at least a novella a year to do just that in new and unique worlds of both science fiction and fantasy, plus some that probably straddle both.

Prime Pickings

Prime Pickings is the first story in my Eaters world. It is a dystopian tale of Earth gone wrong, where most of mankind is locked behind walls and the rest float above the scourge, stealing and scavenging what they can before the Eaters find them. What is an Eater? Yeah...I'm not telling.
