Nothing pleases me more than when two of my favorite pastimes come together. I’ve been writing for several years now, and have managed to turn out one novel manuscript and start on another. In addition to my fiction, I’ve written a few FS aircraft reviews for my good friend Nick Churchill’s website, ScreenshotArtist. Nick and I were chatting recently, and I mentioned that I was growing restless with the standard pro/con review format, and wanted to try something a little different. The result is the Flight Stories series, reviews with a fictional slant.
The series began with Joyride, a tale of a reluctant plane thief and his gung-ho sidekick who liberate a restored B17 from her moorings for a jaunt over the Oregon coast. This weekend, Nick and I posted another entry. Blind Date is a story of lust gone wrong in the sky above the Idaho/Canada border. The star of the show is Eaglesoft’s lovely Columbia 400, showcased against the backdrop of a libidinous encounter that proves the old adage be careful what you wish for. As usual, Nick provides the stunning illustrations. If you haven’t gotten hooked on FS fiction yet, now is an excellent time. Check it out!
