The Stop Watch Gang is a writers group that has already generated a lot of great published short stories. I had a few beers with them last night at the Ad Astra SF convention and went to their reading , and I gotta say there’s a lot of talent in that group.
I’m betting there will be published novels from these writers in the near future.
But speaking of published: the second story I ever had published, Beer Truck, is now available for Kindle. Take it for a spin, but keep in mind that the story is about people doing very dumb things, taking chances so huge that a Darwin Award is but one slippery grip away. Don’t try this at home.
