Story: THE MAN WHO DREW CATS
FREE FOR ALL: Number 7 in the online collection
Welcome again to the online story collection, as announced here. The seventh is THE MAN WHO DREW CATS — the first short story I ever wrote — and I’ve decided to make this free for all. Links to download are below, along with basic instructions.
The main series of stories in an initial bi-weekly run of a dozen are available as a benefit to paid subscribers only. That’s $5/month for two stories — or even less on an annual sub. Remember also that if you refer friends to this Substack and they subscribe (including on the free version) you can earn paid benefits for yourself…
And further recall that you can upgrade to monthly paid membership at any time, and unsubscribe again with a single click... and that discounted rates are available for people who refer this site to friends.
As a happy co-incidence (having already decided this was the story going out this week), while in Boulder last weekend I happened upon a graffiti of a cat…
And here it is in context: this wasn’t out on show, but hidden away down a back alley just for people who happened to notice it. I love it very much.
I hope you enjoy the story!
Apple Books-tailored ePub:
Generic ePub for other readers and Kindle:
If you click on the links above, you will be offered the opportunity to download the file to your phone, tablet or desktop. You then need to find where your device has saved the file (on an iPhone or iPad, go to the Files app — where it should be the last file created) and either click or double-click on it.
That’s how it works in the iOS and MacOS universe, anyway. I assume it’s similar under other OS but if someone has concise instructions on how it might work on an Android phone, please let me know and I’ll put it up for future reference. Failing that we’ll figure it out in the comments section.
❗Please also remember that these stories are a benefit for subscribers, and should not be shared around — especially not uploaded to copyright-thieving Web sites.
If you decide you need a ton more stories, right now, then the table-breaking The Best of Michael Marshall Smith collection is available from Subterranean Press.
If you encounter any problems either downloading or reading, please let me know.
