Due to popular demand, my short story collection Cheap Thrills Digest is now available as an e-book — just in time for holiday gift-giving as a nice little (virtual) stocking stuffer at just 99 cents!
This book began as available only in print and only at shows and book signings but I’ve had several requests to make it available in an e-book format, so now you can get it from Amazon for the Kindle, or directly from me in epub or mobi format.
What’s it about? Here’s the official synopsis:
Innsmouth Look Publishing invites you to explore the worlds of author Michael Bailey in this collection of short stories and a previously unreleased novelette-length story.
Action Figures – An Adventure in Babysitting
Protecting the innocent? That’s easy. Taking down crazed super-villains? No problem. Babysitting the youngest member of the super-team the Quantum Quintet, a little boy whose temper tantrums can level a city block? That could prove the toughest challenge yet for the teen superhero known as Lightstorm.
(Previously published on author’s website and in Action Figures – Issue Three: Pasts Imperfect)
The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Ill Fortune, Undeserved
Track down a small band of Hruk raiders, recover the valuable family heirloom they stole, and bring it back in one piece.
It sounded like an easy enough job for the hard-luck adventuring team of Derek Strongarm and Felix Lightfoot, but as always, nothing is ever as easy as it first seems, and it doesn’t take long for their find-and-recover mission to turn into a hack-and-slash fight for survival.
(Previously published in The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Scratching a Lich)
An innocent day trip takes a bizarre turn when former reporter Max Jeffers discovers a second-rate tourist attraction’s secret star: an allegedly real vampire. Fascinated by the strange woman, Max sets out to discover the truth about her — but will the truth set either of them free, or will it condemn them both to prisons of their own making?
