In what might be called Adventures in Unreality, Still Life stories take place in a world very much like our own, the major difference being that occasionally an inanimate figure might come to life. Some people might say I'm writing in familiar Twilight Zone territory, but that name was already taken, and besides, this tale goes a fair bit beyond what The Twilight Zone was once able to show on television. The Pygmalion myth is several millennia old and has never gone out of style. In Still Life: Barbara, a tall man in a social club for vertically enhanced individuals meets a mysterious, equally statuesque, woman who intrigues him to the point of going out of his way to try and discover her secret before anyone else beats him to it. When he uncovers her not-quite-human past, which explains her virginal nature, he realizes he has himself the catch of a lifetime�provided he can adapt to a relationship unlike any other with this very special woman. It's a delightful adult fantasy come to life.

About 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.
