This weekend, Friday the 18th through Sunday the 20th, you’ll be able to download my scifi story “Lonely Phoenix” for free. The story is set onboard an interstellar colony ship in its centuries long voyage to a new star. And it involves a … vampire? Well, not like any vampire you know about, that’s just the closest word we have for what he is.

To find out more, you’ll have to download, which you can do all for the price of a click.

A Man of Few Words for only $0.99!

FewWords

A Man of Few Words was my first anthology I self-published four years ago.  Here is the blurb for it:

A Man of Few Words is a collection of 50 flash fiction stories by Stephen L. Thompson. How does a teenager work up the courage to call a girl? What would happen if a “T-Rex on steroids” attacked a city? Why do science fiction writers make the best lovers? How does a company get to Second Base with VIPs? These questions and more are explored by Stephen using less than 1000 words and in various genres from humor to horror and general fiction to science fiction.

The majority of the stories have been previously published (most by Stephen himself on his website) but all have been revised for this collection. In addition, each piece is accompanied by some background information giving a fuller story experience.

It’s available in paperback, but also for Kindle.  And it’s because of Kindle that I’m posting this blog.  Last year, Amazon made a change to their promotions.  Before the only promotions were to have your ebook for free for a few days.  But the change allowed you to have discount sales.  For example, the Kindle version of A Man of Few Words is normally $2.99, but I could now have a discount sale for $0.99.  This will be the first time I’m trying this discount to see how it works.  Unless I screwed something up, you should be able to get the Kindle version of A Man of Few Words for $0.99 starting early on the morning of May 2, 2014.  It will stay at that price for about a day and a half, and then go up to $1.99.  After another day and a half, it will return to it’s normal price of $2.99 in the wee hours of May 5.  (They do have set start times, but they’re not always on time.)

So, take a look at my ebook, and if it looks interesting pick it up in the next few days and save a dollar or two.

My short, scifi story “Lonely Phoenix” is now available for $0.99 on Kindle.  Here’s the description:

Partway to a new colony world, board member Geoffrey Ames is woken from hibernation by the caretaking crew of the Lucian.  They require him to look into the matter of their fellow crewman Morgan Heller.  Morgan’s claims – such as being over 1500 years old – would normally land him in the psychiatric ward, except he can back up some of his other claims.

Brain for Rent and other stories

Posted in Books, Stories with tags , , , , , , , , on October 28, 2012 by oneoveralpha

I’ve just published a minianthology of five of my short, scifi stories.  Here’s the description:

“Brain for Rent and other stories” is a collection of five, short scifi stories by Stephen L. Thompson giving a sampling of his writing. Included in the collection are: “Brain for Rent” about a ne’re-do-well failed writer with a conceptual implant who discusses his work with a young woman thinking of getting an implant herself. “The Demonstration” is about a different young woman wanting to show off her latest body modification. “Self Imprisonment” offers one solution of where to put the backup copy of yourself for safe keeping. “The Best Job Ever” is about a necessary – yet unpleasant – human/alien interaction. And the collection ends with “Why Stay?” which explains why, after years of fighting the humans, the robots just deactivate.

“Brain for Rent and other stories” can be on your Kindle for only $0.99!
