Unpublished Stories  
As the end of the year is fast approaching and I've seen several people taking the opportunity to post self-reflexive entries on their writing: What do you do with the stories that never quite made it? I am not speaking about the unfinished ones, but rather the ones that you finished but chose to hold back for one reason or other.

There's this silly, old PotC ficlet that has rummaging around at the back of my mind ever since I re-read it and tinkered with it a couple of days ago. The story is taking place in the same future universe as Distant Figure, only about fifteen years earlier, during the late 1780s, and we've got Gillette in London, all on his own and not very happy. Doubtlessly an absolute niche piece, so disjointed and overladen with historical references that I didn't really wish to inflict it on any beta, just for the sake of the two or three readers that this particular story might eventually get.

And still the whole affair continues to bug me...

Maybe you could test run it on me? ;)

Just sent you an e-mail with the *.doc file attached :-)

This stubborn little story has been incredibly persistent, so maybe it really wants to get read by somebody else ;-)
