Six Bits

A collection of stories by

This book is a collection of short stories, novelettes, and novellas. Two of them, Porter and Macos have been available on Amazon as stand-alone stories in the past, but readers complained that they were too short to justify Amazon's minimum $0.99 price. Thus, I removed Porter and Macos from Amazon, extensively rewrote them and then compiled them with some new short stories in order to provide a better value.
If you already purchased and read Porter and Macos when they were available as stand-alone stories you may be disappointed, but they only make up 34% of the total and the price for all six stories is still just $0.99.
The book consists of six stories (65K words - same length as the novel "Quicker").
1.Sander (Novelette - 8K words) - a story about growing up in the asteroid belt and encountering a man who's a complex mixture of good and evil
2.Exceltor (Novella - 19K words) - a story considering how warfare might work in a future where wormholes allow sudden bridging of large distances in space
3.Macos (Short Story - 8K words) - a coming of age story wherein a young man finds his father is a completely different man than he had always imagined
4.Porter (Novelette - 14K words) - a young girl can open small portals from one location to another with her mind but - to her father's great disappointment - she just wants to play guitar
5.Billy Benoit (Novelette - 12K words) - a man who thinks it would be awesome to go back in time, finds out it isn't as cool as he'd hoped - not at all...
6.Guitar Girl (Short Story - 4K words) - a cover band at a beach bar invites a pretty girl with a guitar to play a set with them - having no idea who she really is...
