About the Book
This book is a bit... different.
It's not exactly a collection of standalone short stories. Although it also isn't not such a collection. Some of the stories you'll read here are meant to be standalone, meaning there's no more thought in them beyond what you read here. Much of what you'll read, however, are ideas for stories. They're the prologue, the first chapter, or some other initial "chunk" of the story. They may, over time, evolve into full novellas or novels.
