The Short Stories of Hagenspan

Someday, it is possible, these will all be gathered
and published as The Found Tales of Hagenspan.
They originally began to come into being as part of's now-defunct "Amazon Shorts" program,
and were intended to be teasers for the novels,
or rewards for those who had read the novels and wanted more.

They turned into some of my favorite vehicles
for exploring segments of Hagenspan's society
that otherwise received only incidental notice.

The artwork shown here is's "cover art" for each of the stories:
the Amazon Shorts artwork on the left, and the Kindle cover on the right.
