At the beginning of 2016, Steve Spalding - author of Founder's Saga and creator of the popular podcast Steve Reads Stories - challenged himself to write one piece of short fiction, every weekday, for a full year. This collection, Cobalt Blue, is the first in a series of books to chronicle that journey.
Inside are 20 original tales, ranging from a contemporary fantasy piece about relationships, gods and the weather ("Partly Cloudy"), to a science fiction short that follows an aging treasure hunter as he searches the galaxy for his lost son ("The Fire and the Black").
After every story, Steve gives insight into his inspiration, the writing process, and the challenges of 2am editing sessions.
Cobalt Blue is the perfect companion for listeners who like their whimsy with a dose of darkness, for anyone looking to have their heart strings plucked at, and for connoisseurs of great fiction the world over.
a collection of flash fiction that ranges from SciFi to literary to horror, that experiments with form (some written in the 2nd person, some written as monologues or one-sided conversations). It takes you on a wild ride in a short period of time.
