A bunch of short stories free from Smashwords:

I wanted to review each story & they deserve it. They are often quirky, other times horrible &/or twisted, but all were very good. A lot of different genres were covered from Medieval fantasy to SF. I probably should have rated this as 4 stars, but it's free & very well written. That earns it an extra star & I'm not sure it doesn't deserve it anyway.

"Nanny" is about nanobots with a great ending.

Don't know if I can finish this one. I started out with an open mind about it, and the first few stories were fine, but the writing needs fine tuning. For example, I enjoyed 'Edgar' and 'A Darkness of Spirit' as they evoked a sort of nostalgia for writing stories of cats and dragons as a kid.

First of all, I want to thank Eric Diehl for offering this little gem for free on Smashwords. I’m very glad I decided to give his anthology a try.

Looking for stories about nano technology, magic, disembodied souls, space pirates, and aliens along with the weird and crazy?

Look no further, 24:01 One Minute After by Eric Diehl is a well written anthology of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror short stories that will leave you wanting more. Diehl quickly pulls you into his story worlds then guides you through the lives of his characters then leaves your mind asking the questions "what just happened here" or "I didn't see that coming... I've

Supernatural Fict...: FREE anthology --24:01: One Minute After by Eric Diehl 3 45 May 04, 2012 08:12AM  
Eric is a tinkerer; he likes to make things. Perhaps it began with a custom van built in the long-haired days of the seventies—an old school bus with an engine salvaged from the junk yard. Or with the dozens of motorcycles ridden, broken, repaired and ridden again. Eric has built furniture and guitars; he’s screen-printed t-shirts and he’s used software to created package-design. He’s written soft ...more
