Overview

Remember back when you were 18, the world was a simpler place, and the biggest mystery in your life was the opposite sex? In this young man's fantasy it is the late summer of 1969, I was just out of high school, gas was cheap, and magic� magik as they called it�was still new to the world. So when a Wild-Eyed Man handed me a wand with the promise of great rewards in return for a small favor that might be a tiny tad illegal, I had no idea what I was getting into. Not until I that first young female mannequin started breathing and stretching on her own did I even begin to understand the adventure that I now found myself thrust into. This is the very beginning Still Life story.

Meet the Author

D. B. Story is a writer living in the southwestern United States. While that territory can cover anywhere from New Mexico to Hawaii he declines to be more specific at this time. His use of the time-honored artifice of writing under a pseudonym comes from the necessity to still maintain a day job and the habit of employers to Google new applicants to discover what stupid things said applicant is willing to foolishly do, and then doubly foolishly post for the world to see afterwards. Such invasions of one�s personal life become an unnecessary distraction. D. B. Story has long had interests in both Science Fiction (since first discovering his mother�s secret cache of Ace Doublebooks stashed under her bed) and writing. In fact, anything he has enjoyed participating in he eventually has a desire to create as well. He seriously began writing (although not selling) stories ten years ago due to a dissatisfaction with what he was reading at the time and the belief that he could do it better. He started out with the interaction between humans and the sexy robots they would inevitably create and later branched out to other erotic Fantasy and SF genres. During that time he has written everything from flash fiction to a 402,000 word novel and a screenplay based on his other writings, as yet unsold. Whether his writing is actually �better� he admits he must leave to his readers to decide, but he likes his stuff a lot. He has often said that, �Writing time is always good time.� He also says that with the advent of cheap computers, word processors, eBooks, and the Internet that times have never been better for a diversity of writers to be heard.
