What It Is

It's The Plant, an epistolary novel set in the early 1980s (before e-mail,
in other words, and when even the fax was a fringe technology). It'll be
presented in parts ranging from 5000 to 7000 words. The story is sort of
funny and at the same time pretty gruesome (think Christine). I'm committed
to publishing at least the first two segments. Whether or not I publish more

Depends on What?

In the words of The Turtles, "You, baby, nobody but you." If you pay, the
story rolls. If you don't, the story folds.

How Much?

Buck an episode.


My friends, we have a chance to become Big Publishing's worst nightmare. Not
only are we going glueless, look Ma, no e-Book! No tiresome encryption! Want
to print it and show it to a friend? Go ahead! There's only one catch: all
this is on the honor system. Has to be. I'm counting on two things. The
first is plain old honesty. "Take what you want and pay for it," as the old
saying goes. The second is that you'll like the story enough to want to read
more. If you do want more, you have to pay. Remember: Pay and the story
rolls. Steal and the story folds. No stealing from the blind newsboy!
