I’ve now reached 55,000 of an anticipated 60,000 words on my new speculative fiction collection of short stories. Room to add one or two more stories and a number of the stories are in need of improvement. The full list of stories so far are: The Grief Counselors, Ultimate Equalizer, Task Force to Earth XXX, Human Hunter, Search Mission, A Helping Hand, The Search for Humanity, Raechelle Daughter of the High Lords, Under Attack, Past his Used by Date, Soldier of the Rorne, Broolt, Trathh – Return to Empire, Reality Check and Computer Audit. Seen a couple of great images (for the front cover) on the fotolia image library. It’s hard to choose between them. The publisher of my first book still seems quite interested and a few other people have asked to be kept informed.
