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

For several years, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom (editor). I'm physically disabled, and I currently live 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 eight cats. 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?
