While We're Tinkering

I'm having some problems with Blogger at the moment that are preventing new posts from showing up on PBW. Tommy is going to post this one for me so everyone doesn't worry.

While we're working on a fix, I was able to post the short story I promised over at the fiction blog:

Familiar by Lynn Viehl

A .pdf version of the story will also be available later today; Tommy or I'll post a link when FTP is working. can be downloaded by clicking here.

Thanks for your patience.


  1. I enjoyed that story. Very satisfying!

    Thanks so much for the story. I really enjoyed it, but being greedy, I hope there will be a follow up since the opening was left for one.

  3. Blogger is so frustrating.

    Oooh, Lynn, awesome, awesome! Please, please more?!?! I'll be good, I'll be good!!! Would absolutely love to see this storyline expanded. Oh, and the "local bar association" was priceless! Thank you!

    Absolutely delightful story, Lynn. It's almost like a secret desire tale. I'd certainly like to be able to communicate with animals, especially my springer spaniel. She hurt her back last week, had emergency surgery, and now is winning the Pill War with two lame rear legs, and with one front paw tied behind her back. The good news is we've seen a little movement in her left rear leg and she seems to have some sensation returning.

    What I wouldn't give to be able for her to tell me what's up and for me to explain why she HAS to take the meds.

    I enjoyed the adventures of Rachel and Roscoe. I hope Dorothy's last words are a prediction for more to come.

    Thanks! You started my day off with a smile.

    Karen, the lurker

  6. Thank you! I've got it saved to read later. I love dog stories.

    Loved it, loved it, loved it.

    Thank you sooo much for this. Funny, moving, exciting. And inspiring.

    Am I supposed to like this, by the way, being male and 32 years old? Oh, to heck with it - I love it.

  8. What was Dorothy's idea? Any guesses?

  9. What's Dorothy's idea?!?!? After the last episode of Sopranos last night, I can't take anymore cliffhangers!!

    I just assumed that Dorothy's idea would be for Rachel to become a writer. I didn't think that the story would carry on, but I would love to read more.

    I like the story. Thanks for sharing.

    I have to add that sometimes the meaning is obvious. I saw a perfect example of the cut direct from my brother’s German Shepherd just a few days ago. I have read a lot of historical fiction set in Britain; I never could visualize how just ignoring someone could be such a vicious social insult. Gus made it very plain.

  12. Loved the story! I couldn't help picturing Dorothy as reincarnated Dorothy Parker. What fun.

    I laughed, smiled and sighed through this story. What a tight little story. It gave me so much pleasure. Thank you, Ms. Viehl, you ARE an author!

    My friend and I specifically loved Roscoe and Brownie...dude.
