From Aimée to Ashleigh: Rocky Road Out to Daily Science Fiction Subscribers

Just a short note that my second story in 2014 for DAILY SCIENCE FICTION went out to subscribers this morning, to celebrate Labor Day.  The first, “Casket Girls” (see, e.g., April 17), was on April 10 which celebrates nothing to my knowledge other than a story of mine being published on DAILY SF.  These are the third and fourth for me and the previous two, “Killer Pot” and “Naughty or Nice,” were also both published in the same year, 2011.  Numbers 1, 2, and 3 are also still posted in the DAILY SF archives — just press here, then enter “Dorr” (no, without the quotation marks) in the SEARCH box at the upper right — and, while you’re at it, you can use the box just below it to subscribe free to the ezine too.  Or, if still a non-subscriber, “Rocky Road” should go into the archives itself on September 8.

Then, finally, two fun facts about “Rocky Road”:  (1) At less than 500 words, “Rocky Road” is the shortest of the four stories I’ve had in DAILY SCIENCE FICTION while, at nearly three times the length, the Christmas story “Naughty or Nice” is the longest; (2) of my four stories in DAILY SCIENCE FICTION “Rocky Road” is the only one that contains no words in French.


  1. Read it and gave it all the rocket dragons possible, Jim! Good one! Keep ’em coming! Surprise ending, for me.

  2. Marge, thanks! We’ll see how it goes with the other readers.
