Maybe I’m mistaken, but I thought you posted another story with this character in it several months ago here, didn’t you Kris? I remember the special chair. (I need one of those myself, I’m afraid.)
Good stuff. I enjoy these a great deal. Thank you for sharing it!
I did. “Trick or Treat,” I think. I love these characters. Have written several stories about them, and plan to write more. 🙂
I started reading this and then realized that I already own the paperback! This story is the first in the collection.
You will publish more in this series, won’t you? Spade and Paladin are such a cute duo.
I will. There was a holiday story in Hitchcock’s in Jan/Feb of 2015. There will be more. 🙂
