The next several stories I put up here will be previously unpublished. I might get around to publishing them more broadly and I might not. Either way, you’ll get to see them here. This first one is from a submission to Dean Wesley Smith’s Cave Creek anthology. Although he accepted another story I sent, he rejected this one and said it seemed like part of a longer story. As it turned out, this story at least infomedmy novel, The Portals.
