I’m behind on my Patreon announcements. There are two new stories available – one for patrons and one that’s free to read. The former, “The Tiger, At Large”, features Baxter Sarlowe, a character I haven’t written about in some time, and his investigation of a haunted painting by Rousseau.

So be sure to check back each week for a new (old) story. And if you feel like checking out some of the patron-only stories, I encourage you to do so.
