FREE short stories by Paul B. Spence

Over on Smashwords, science fiction author Paul B. Spence (my clone-sibling) recently added two short stories in the same setting as The Madness Engine, and they’re both FREE.


On Mars in AD 2956, Detective Evelyn Parker’s investigation into a possible terrorist attack reveals hints of a looming threat worse than she could have imagined.

(I interviewed the protagonist of this story not long ago for an A-to-Z post.)


Commander Hrothgar Tebrey leads a team of Special Forces personnel to hunt a Theta entity aboard a space station, and he finds more than he bargained for.

(I didn’t interview Hrothgar Tebrey, but I did interview his brother.)


About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

  1. Should I read these stand-alone, without background in their universe, or would it be better to wait until I’ve had time for one or two of the novels?
