Listen to Steve read Lee and Miller’s locked-room murder mystery, “A Night at the Opera.” Here’s your link.
We continue to go through the Lee & Miller archives and as time permits will be adding old stories and splinters as we get to them. Here’s one that hasn’t been seen for awhile.
Running The Race was written by Steve and published in Dream Again: A Journal of Spirituality and Madness, back in 1995, as a follow-on for a workshop he did for his then job as Citizen Access Specialist for the Citizen Access Network . That basically meant he was Sysop and Chief Trainer for the Maine Meeting Place BBS in its role as an attempted community center for people who, by the of their personal situation and issues, were living in isolation. Some were physically disabled, some had mental health issues, and all needed a way to communicate.
Many of the participants in the workshop, which took place off-season at a well-known Maine winter resort, wrote or tried to write about their difficulties. Poetry, fiction, screeds, agendas, books — all were in evidence at the workshop. There were lots of plans, lots of big ideas, lots of goals … and eventually two or three actual publications. Steve was invited to contribute on the first issue’s theme, which was isolation.
“The Road to Pomona’s” by Sharon Lee has been posted to Splinter Universe, under Stories and Features.
Novelette “The Wolf’s Bride,” and short story “Will-o’-the-Wisp” have been removed from Splinter Universe and compiled into echapbook Spell Bound by Sharon Lee, and is now being sold at Amazon, BN, Kobo, the iStore, and other ebook stores.
A new story — the second new story in January! — has been posted.
“Will-o’-the-wisp” is an Archers Beach story — the second in January! It takes place just after the end of Carousel Seas, and deals with one of the changes that occur in that novel.
A new story has been posted, nominally, it’s in the Archers Beach universe, though it actually takes place in the Land of the Flowers.
If you’re new to Splinter Universe — welcome! Feel free to take the time to read the other splinters and stories posted here, by Lee, Miller, Lee and Miller, and great guest authors such as Alma Alexander, E.C. Ambrose, Chaz Brenchley, and Marie Brennan.
