I’ve posted a new story for patrons over at my Patreon today. “La Chauve-Souris” is a science-fiction story of sorts – it’s also a monster story, and maybe slightly Lovecraftian? – and one that went in a weird direction. Originally, I conceived of it as a detective story, but that’s not how it turned out.
Like “Hungerpillar”, it’s a bit of a mood piece. There’s a plot there, but it’s mostly between the lines. It’s another experimental piece, as well. I wanted to try something different, focusing on the characters rather than the story they’re entangled in. I don’t know whether it worked or not. I’ll leave it to readers to decide.
If you’re not a patron, and you’d like to read this story – or any of the others – simply head over to my Patreon, pledge a dollar and you’ll be given access. And if you can’t pledge anything for whatever reason, feel free to enjoy the free short stories I’ve posted. That’s what they’re there for.
