The question comes up often: Are the Chet and Bernie short stories available in printed form? Answer: no. The first 4 – A Cat Was Involved, The Iggy Chronicles Volume 1, Tail of Vengeance, and Santa 365 – are available digitally. For example, you could read them on your phone. I myself would never read a novel on a phone, but a short story? That sounds perfect. Short story small screen. Alliterative and on point! (Nothing to stop you from printing them out.)

AND: the 4 short stories are also available on audio, narrated by the great Jim Frangione. As for the two latest short stories – Upper Story and The Iggy Papers – both part of special deals at pub time for Heart of Barkness and Of Mutts and Men – I hope they will also become available at some point.

So this e-short story might name a nice digital stocking stuffer. (More Chet and Bernie related news to come.)

On Sundays, we do beginnings, taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker. We’ve been looking at the middle-grade Echo Falls series – unlike the Chet and Bernie series, Echo Falls should probably be read in sequence. Today, #3, Into the Dark, but instead of the beginning, here’s a little bit of Mr. Sidney, the old school bus driver, talking to Ingrid and her friend Ty about Bataan, which of course is all new to them.

“Very next morning they had us on the road to the prison camp. Not going to talk about the Death March – you can look it up. Not going to talk about the starvation, or the disease, the heat, or what happened to anybody who lagged behind, even to drink from a mud puddle.”

“What happened to them?” said Ty.

“What did I just say?” said Mr. Sidney.

[“I’ve read the two previous Echo Falls mysteries featuring Ingrid (Down the Rabbit Hole and Behind the Curtain) and enjoyed them, but I think this one may be the best of all.”
