As you might imagine,
a 20,000-year-old genius can accumulate a few stories in her day. Some of them are true. A few I have embellished a wee bit. (Smile at the nice people, bit-chan! ) Why, some I have even made up out of whole cloth! I leave it as an exercise for the discerning reader to decide which is which.

Secret Murder: My alternate-universe murder mystery. Get a short description and the first chapter here.
Thorolf and the Peacock: A side-story to an episode that took place about 800 years ago, in Secret Murder. Did I tell you I wrote a book? The cover is on the welcome page! Go buy the book, the links are there.
The Old Shell Game: this guy shows up in Dances With Werewolves, but not as a player. He's a link between the Outlook, and the Supers.
Dances With Werewolves: the first of the Outlook stories, wherein it is explained that "werewolf" is a generic term for Weres, and that the true wolves are actually quite rare. Lime.
Cycles of Violence: worse things than werewolves and wendigos might show up in your bar.
Fanfiction: Why not?
The Strange Case of the Misplaced Superhero: this is my first fanfic, from back in 1961 when I was young and in college. (I wrote things in high school also, but they don't count as fanfic.) It holds up rather well for a teenage writer -- but be gentle, good reader. It's here as an example.
Variations on a theme: Not fanfic, but meditations on fanfic.

Supers: I started writing superhero comics in the early Sixties, somewhat before the rise(?) of the Underground Comics. I was neither aboveground nor below - I called it "ground level comics". I'm told some parvenu comic company later adopted the name. I've been playing with the concept ever since, and it's grown into a story arc with about fifteen episodes. (Think of it as moving from Lake Wobegon to the Big City, with supers. It's the same world as the Outlook, but mostly a different cast.) You can meet some of the ideas and people here. The stories themselves are in a variety of formats.
0 - A Scent of Vengeance - Text. Captain Mercaptan's first appearance.
1 - Introductions - Comic script. Meet Jimmy Crockett, Miss Power, and the wonderful world of Twinopolis. This one shares the usual weaknesses of origin stories, and it really could use a rewrite; but though it's not much of a story, I think it has some really neat ideas and explanations in it.
2 - A Busy Day, With Skunks - Comic script. Captain Mercaptan takes vengeance upon the FBI, and encounters his old friend Prof. Wadleigh in the process.
3 - Robots On The Town - Scenario with dialogue. The good Professor's thirtieth birthday is coming up, and his robots want to get him a present.
4 - Suitable For Framing - Scenario with dialogue. Miss Power is annoyed at Wadleigh's robots for throwing a biting dog at her, so she comes up with a fiendish - and low-tech - plan for revenge.
5 - Meet The Press - Comic script. Rocketking concocts a foolproof scheme to make money.
6 - Master of the Universes - Comic script. A night at the Super-Heroes' Club, and beyond.
7 - Puff's Tale - Comic scenario. Not all the supers are human ....
9 - The Old Shell Game - Text. What happens when a super has an adventure in his civilian guise?
11- Icarus has a really bad week: Illustrated. Life can get complicated when supers change allegiance. This was actually the second story written as a part of "Supers", way back when I was doing scripts for Star Studded Comics. (The first story simply wouldn't translate into a script, and was replaced by "Meet The Press", which managed the same endpoint. SSC didn't publish it, so it was picked up by Carl Gafford's Minotaur. Carl rewrote it using a generic hero named Icarus instead of the SSC hero it was originally written for.)
