New Fiction: The Case of the Pot of Gold

June 24th, 2012 by jkastronis

Hey everyone! It seems like the only updates I’m doing lately are more stories, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, because that’s what this site is all about after all. Maybe I’ll get the chance to add more book reviews or the like soon…

But enough about that for now! Today I bring you The Case of the Pot of Gold, where a detective is hired by an unusual client to find out who stole his prized possession. This should be the first of what might be a recurring series of stories involving this setting and main character, though I’ve not yet written anything else involving him. I’ll definitely revisit the setting in other ways too.

Until next week.

New Fiction: A Day for a Modern Heroine

June 10th, 2012 by jkastronis

Here’s a new story and this one is kinda light, compared to my other stuff. This is more of a straight forward plot moving story, set in the Home Base Comics continuity. In A Day for a Modern Heroine, we meet Lydia, a woman created in a lab seemingly for the sole purpose of playing the role of a cartoon character at birthdays and public appearances. But things go awry during one of her gigs and the super powers she was given prove to have some use. I guess it’s not entirely just a straightforward plot, thinking about it now. It lays some groundwork for future Home Base stories as well as serving as a bit of a tongue-in-cheek look at female superheroes in general.
