Updating the DRS Amazon Store

A long time ago I started setting up a store for people who wanted to purchase stories written by the hosts and guests of the Dead Robots’ Society, but apparently I never did much with it, so this morning I decided to rectify that. If you’d like to read my novel STILL WATER, or Terry’s EMPIRE OF BONES, or (the Gods forbid) Paul’s THE BLACK, then here is a link that’ll take you right to them. Thank you in advance, and have a Happy Presidents’ Day!
