Mel. White


Known affectionately by her kids as "Indiana Mom", freelance anthropologist and PhD student (information science) Mel. White renounced the Dilbert-In-Cube-Land existence of a computer programmer for a life of adventure, books, and lots and lots of homework. And research.
She's had a number of cartoons and comic book stories published as well as three graphic novels (the Duncan & Mallory series with the late Robert Asprin.) Her fiction has appeared in magazines and five different anthologies and as the latest degree stumbles toward completion, she's begun to write again. Her current projects and ideas in progress can be found at

Expect weirdness.

The Lamp of Many Wishes
By Mel. White
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 5,040. Language: English. Published: February 8, 2012. Category: Fiction
(4.00 from 1 review)
This is an edited reprint of my first short story sale to Mike Resnick and Martin Goldberg’s 1992 ALADDIN, MASTER OF THE LAMP anthology. It's got the sly humor of a traditional Scheherazade-type story and is told in a style that is an homage to Richard Burton's original "A Thousand And One Arabian Nights."
The Barrow Lands Bards
By Mel. White
Price: Free! Words: 10,250. Language: English. Published: June 23, 2011. Category: Fiction
Between this world and elsewhen lies the Barrow Lands; the place where things that were once magic go when the magic fades. This is a collection of two of the Barrow Bard tales -- the ones most frequently performed at science fiction conventions by Mel. White
