I’ve made available for the Kindle my short story “Straight Shot,” which is a little bit of a rarity, at least in this version. I wrote this for the program book when I was guest of honor at the 2000 World Fantasy Con in Corpus Christi, Texas. That version had a brief, extraneous fantasy element added to it, so it would suit the con theme a little better. This version omits that element — which improves it quite a bit, IMO — and is therefore my preferred version of the story. Hope you enjoy it!
