My story "The Consultant and the Kraken" is now up at Quantum Barbarian. Click on the phrase Jeff writes great prose to see it.
This story was written quickly on impulse and I liked it so much that I sent it right in without running it through the workshop gauntlet. While that is generally a no-no of interstellar proportions, the (excellent) editor of Quantum Barbarian enjoyed it enough to accept it. Please feel free to send love mail to Tyrone Brooks, a.k.a. firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a side note, Tyrone's wife Jo also writes great speculative fiction, much more character-driven than my situational or idea-driven stories.
