You can dive into any one of these excerpts from the novel and find something close to a short story -- a problem will start, characters will try to deal with that problem, and then some type of resolution - some new equilibrium will wrap things up -- so while these are not quite short stories -- they are absolutely complete entertainments. Add some covers, and maybe there’s something new in the world. Take a look and see what you think.
