Today is a big deal for The 'Bot: We're running our first full-length novel! Written by Chip Haynes, the same man who gave us "Sixty Days Next Year" a few weeks back.

Were this an actual print novel (How quaint!) The back cover would read something like this:

All Ray Meadows did- the one innocent act that started it all- was this: He looked out the window. His wife was fast asleep. She didn’t see a thing. Ray saw it all. Well, he saw the one thing he wasn’t supposed to see. He saw exactly what it is that goes bump in the night.
That single moonlit curiosity fast became an annoyance that then marched itself right toward obsession. What was that thing? Ray went from average neighborhood good guy and your favorite buddy at work to a man possessed as he searched for answers- and the animal he wasn’t supposed to see. He didn’t want it to change him. He was happy with his life. But did you see that?
From the suburbs of present-day Indianapolis to London during the Blitz of WWII, Ray finds and follows the trail of a curious animal that should not be here- but is. The more he knows, the more he wants to know, and curiosity was the cat’s undoing. Would Ray fare any better? And just how dangerous is that thing?
If Climbers keeps you up at night, here’s a word to the wise: Don’t look out the window.

So step through the jump to find out what that's all about!

Welcome to part two - the conclusion - of "Bubba's Burger Barn," a somewhat Dickian comedy that gets vicious in this installment, and might well scare the crap out of you by the end.

Read if you dare.

And if you *don't* dare, no matter. We've got a completely new story beginning next week.

ORIGINAL FICTION: "Climbers" by Chip Haynes

It was a beautiful night, the moon shining bright, and before I plagiarize a perfectly good Eagles’ song, let me tell you: All Ray Meadows did- the one innocent act that started it all- was this: He looked out the window. His wife was fast asleep. She didn’t see a thing. Ray saw it all. Well, he saw the one thing he wasn’t supposed to see. He saw exactly what it is that goes bump in the night.

What I'm Doin'

I just sent the manuscript of my first book off to the editor. It came in at 55,527 words. It's an anthology, it'll be called "Ice Cream and Venom," and hopefully it'll be available for download here and on Amazon fairly soon, and in limited run as a paperback some time after that.

"You guys want a little mood music?"
"For this mood, there is no music."
