Weekend Fiction Stories for 6/15-17 2012

Rate: 8 Flag
 
 
This is the place to read Fiction Weekend stories for this Friday/Saturday/Sunday - and to announce your own piece! 

Stories will be posted throughout the weekend, so feel free to check back regularly for new pieces to read.

If you're participating, announce your piece with its title and a brief description in the Comments section of this post.

This week's prompt was:
 
 
Write a story about an unusual Father's Day gift.  
 
 
Or, if that didn't inspire you, you could write a fiction piece on any topic, in any style you want.

Everyone is welcome to join in - if you feel inspired, go for it! 

The only requirement is that a piece announced in the comments be a fiction piece.  

If you're not sure what qualifies as "fiction" in terms of the Fiction Club, please read this.   

For information about how to announce a story, etc, please see our "Bio" in the left margin of this page.

You have all weekend to write your story and announce it in the comments section below.

Happy writing and reading!

"Unusual" is the title of my Father's Day gift story.

Happy Father's Day!
I have written a sequel to my "Wolf" story, titled "Wolf II", for the time being. It concerns the background of my character, Frank, which includes details about his parents, so in that way it has something to do with the prompt.
Father and Daughter, A Special Day: This is the title of my story this week!
My story this week is called Fifty Shades of Kayne. As the title might suggest to you, it's a bit racy at points. Solomon Kayne is on the trail of a Cthulhu cult again, but to find where their ominous lair exists, he must extract the information from a young woman with, ahem, interesting tastes. You know best what will offend you so proceed with caution. Happy reading!
Chapter four of The Acapulco Cocktail, the second episode of Sun on the Rocks is posted, along with earlier installments. Enjoy.
I'm in! http://open.salon.com/blog/nilesite/2012/06/15/os_weekend_fiction_dna_saves_the_day

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there!
