Children of the Corner – A Corner Scribblers Halloween Special

Well, Happy Readers, I’m a day late on the Halloween thing (maybe two if you’re signed up for email), but it couldn’t be helped. I had to get the ‘maters ready for 1st frost around here. But now you can enjoy your candy and your unnecessary time change as you read some spoopy tales!

The Corner Scribblers present:

Children of the Corner

Children of the Corner is our 2nd Holiday Special, this time for Halloween 2020 (because 2020 hasn’t been scary enough, right?) . There are 10 tales of witches, ghosts, creepers, zombies, vampires and odd phenomena of horror to thrill your senses. Some are short and some longer, but it’s almost 40,000 words for you to enjoy.

My story is called Tornado Ed. It is a spooky ghost story about a haunted mine. It’s would make a very good campfire tale too!

If Science Fiction Space Adventure is what you crave, then you should check out my anthology, Horizons Unlimited: Volume 1.


Matter conversion technology—Matt-Con—has broadened the scope of mankind’s existence. It has opened up the real possibility of viable colonies on other planets in our solar system, and even space itself. Anywhere matter can be captured or energy from the sun can be felt, the possibility of expanding human habitation exists.

In this volume:

Quicksilver (short story)

The space station Chariot of Helios—on its way to Mercury to become a power collection station for Earth’s growing need for energy to power matt-con tech—encounters a strange anomaly that threatens ship and crew.

Null Gravitas (short story)

New crew and new relationships form above the skies of Venus. A post-prequel to Escaping Aurora.

Escaping Aurora (novella)

The sudden destruction of mankind’s first atmospheric terraforming platform leaves three unlucky exonauts struggling to survive in the skies of Venus aboard a cobbled-together airship. Meanwhile, the commander of the space station above battles obstacles that might keep her from rescuing her stranded husband and crew in time.

If you like intrigue, humor and a bit of speculative technological supposition, you should pick up a copy of my technothriller-comedy eConscience Beta from Amazon today!

Peacekeeper Incorporated’s breakthrough nanotechnology could bring repeat offense crime to an end, freeing society from the need for criminal incarcerations. But first, they have to finish testing it. With funding on the line, and time to prove out the project getting short, the lead scientist must find a way speed things up. That’s unfortunate for his guinea pig, and anyone who would stand in his way.

Can the goal of ending most crime justify committing one… even a few?
And what happens when you conflate altruism with egotism?

Find out in eConscience Beta, where two lab techs and an uncouth petty criminal must outwit a brilliant but sociopathic scientist who’ll stop at nothing to establish his legacy as the man who ended crime.
