Maya Spore

Kara's Corner

Since a while, my friend Kara has been my biggest fan of my work. But then she got the virus as well, after a conversation about Isaac Asimov's Foundation series, and she started to write herself, displaying a lot of talent.
One thing lead to another and I decided to publish these story for her along with mine. So here it is: Kara's Corner.

I don't take credit for any of the stories published here. They are hers and hers only. Read for yourself how great they are :-)

Diamonds Aren't Forever

Maya is called upon by a man in black to investigate whether diamonds are, in fact, a girl's best friend. Along the way she leaves many a corpse, a shriveled, undead mummy, and cops who are, as usual, baffled. Aided by her devoted but dippy secretary CeeCee, Maya finds this case has facets which could change the world, or at least her sorry bank balance.

The Pyramids of Gold

The Curse of King Tut is small potatoes compared to the havoc Maya Spore and her not-too-trustworthy assistant CeeCee unleash when they travel to the fabled plain of Giza. Missing Confederate gold bars, arrest by French authorities, an assassin in a snazzy fez, jeweled daggers, and a loyal cabbie who doesn't mind getting shot are just a few elements in this noir excursion which combines every cliche of pulp archaeology and detective thriller.
But it's funny, we promise!
