Default The Big Box - part 2 "Call Me Sam"

I had a plot inspiration yesterday morning and wrote up the next story in what I'm now calling The Big Box series. This one is titled "Call Me Sam".

Any and all comments (good or bad) are appreciated.

Very interesting technique to write from the gun's point of view. Another good story... Hope to see you write more and thanks for the fine entertainment. Your writing style makes me feel like I'm listening to this story sitting by the stove at the end of a hard day

I really like the story. Telling it from the gun's point of view was really different and made it more interesting.

Elaborate more! Make it into a book, not just a short story. I was hooked, but kept thinking to myself that the details weren't there. Keep it up and you've got yourself a novel!! Good job!

Part 3 is posted on this forum, so be sure to read it!

*blush* I downloaded part 3 to my computer a few days ago, then got busy and forgot to read it! Plus I had a really bad cold over the last few days, so I can plead 'mental dysfunction'!

All of Culex's writing (so far!) has been exellent reads!

Thanks LazyDaisy. I wrote the first one, The Big Box, with the intent of it being a stand alone short story... however with the requests for more I decided to make a series of short stories, all building on the same theme/event. This one is obviously part 2 and as GypsySue said, part 3 is available and part 4 is almost done. When I run out of ideas and end the series I'll probably combine them all into one long story... or maybe not since each is intended to also stand on its own.

How about calling it a collection of short stories? Leave them as they are here on the forum, then assemble them together and put them on Amazon?
