Uh…Blaaat? Ta-ra ta-raah? Or maybe: Yay me! Complete computer dunce that I am, I still managed (with a lot of help) to upload my first two stories, “Buzzard Gulch” and “Con of the Dead,” to Kindle! I don’t have a Kindle myself so I had to rely on the Previewer, so I hope the formatting … More What Is the Sound of One’s Horn Blowing?
