I've written a lot of stories, and one thing I've learned is that stories have a life. They want to be read, and they're brought to life by readers. Readers give them meaning, give them substance and fulfill their destinies. Stories aren't picky about who reads them. They welcome everyone. Money means nothing to them - they don't care how much the reader paid and they equally don't care how much the author made. Stories want to live and they want to be a part of your life. I often think of them as like paper boats you place upon a stream. You never know where they'll end up!
"Author of curiously engaging novellas. His stories are not driven by action but by mood and metaphysics. His premises often begin with fairly standard, often vaguely science-fiction concepts, but he spins those concepts out into melancholy, thoughtful tales in which he explores the emotion and (often) dislocation that people feel when confronted by something outside their normal experience." - Devon Kappa

This will be a fine story…
…when the second half is published. The author paints vivid characters, sets up a very promising situation, moves the story briskly forward into dire complications, and then…
…Quits. Just like that.
If it were an overtly experimental fiction fragment or a free come-on for the whole book, I would grumble but accept it; but a standalone story it ain’t. This highly talented writer is like the little girl who had a little curl right in the middle of her forehead.
