About the Stories

I write. A lot. Some of my writing, you can read on the internet for free, because I love you all! And because I’m an attention junkie.

Brigid and Greg

The Brigid and Greg Fictionlets — Episodes from the life of an incorrigible shrew and a muddleheaded chump. With occasional appearances by a white cat.

The Brigid and Greg “Fictionlets” started out primarily as a writing exercise in 2004. I wanted a pair of names that I could use to throw banter and funny ideas back and forth, but two things happened. First, I got an unexpected (but very welcome) demand for more Brigid and Greg stories. Second, the characters of Brigid and Greg, intended to be blank slates, suddenly developed in sharp detail in my mind. And the rest, as they say, is history!

Michael Macbeth, Paranormal Consultant

Stray Cat Strut — The first story written about Michael Macbeth.

Michael Macbeth was inspired largely by Douglas Adams’ “Dirk Gently” stories — and just like Dirk Gently, he’s an annoyingly difficult character to write well! I probably have about 75,000 words worth of abandoned Michael Macbeth fragments, but I also have a very strong outline that’s just waiting for a chance to work on it.

Tales of Ethangea

Lords of Khaldun — There really are fates worse than death.

Ethangea is a swords-and-sorcery setting for my fantasy writing. I have written a variety of tales and fragments for it, including one novel — hopefully more will come in time.

Miscellaneous Writing

All I Want is a Cup of Coffee — This was inspired by a writing exercise in Creativity Rules by John Vorhaus.

The Jackalope — A fun little poem.

The Prisoner Filk — I draw way too much inspiration from that show.

Random Conan Fanfic — Just what the title says it is. Also quite short.

  1. Sorry to drop this here, but I just wanted to let you know . . . I was scanning your revised page, looking to see if you had any of your old books available, and found that the link you have to your archive (http://gneech.com/2010/02) is coded wrong (right now it’s (http://gneech.com2010/02), I believe.

    Just wanted to let you know . . . oh, and to ask directly if you have any of your books available too *grin*.

  2. Heyas. 🙂 The site is still undergoing a lot of revising, as you can see, so hopefully any coding kinks will be worked out over time. (Most of the links are automated by WordPress, so I only have limited control of them anyway.)

    re: My books, there are only a handful left of any of them, although both SJ and NN are getting new books this summer. Once I have all the e-commercey stuff worked out here, I’ll put up links for them. 🙂 Thanks for asking, and try me again soon!

  3. Hi i don’t know where to put this so putting it here hoping i get a response :).

    I have been running a game of uncanny midnight tales was kinda just a trial see how it flowed. I am pretty much at the end of the adventure you made kinda surprised but my group wants to continue.

    My problem I am not a great dm and I don’t really know where to go with the campaign was wondering if you can help some plot points to it? Like a little more fleshed out then what is at the end of the book. < more of me failing… Other then some plot points i could run with for awhile longer are there and plans to specifically continue writing adventures for uncanny midnight tales?

  4. Wow…I completely forgot about Suburban Jungle. Gonna have to re-read this. I lost the link at some point during computer rebuilds.
