Author has written 16 stories for Kolchak: The Night Stalker, and StarTrek: The Original Series.

My Kolchak is based on the original character, written so splendidly by Jeff Rice in his first novel, The Night Stalker (good book, don't miss it). Rice's Kolchak was quite crude and and quite sour – understandable considering he was telling the story of all the injustices that had happened in Las Vegas. The character was later 'sweetened' considerably (for more sensitive audiences) for his appearance on TV in the 1970s, not to mention dried out. Rice's Kolchak turned to the bottle in a big way after he discovered vampires actually existed. Wouldn't we all.

The Star Trek story (A Paramount Predicament) is an outlier, written by a much (!) younger version of myself.

The characters are not mine, I don't own anything except these stories :-). This is the time-line of the Kolchak stories (although timeline becomes important really at #9)

1. Interview (Before a Vampire)

2. Little Romani Tearoom

3. Connecting the Dots

4. Forever is a Very Long Time

5. December 24th

6. Tango

7. A Slice of Life

8. Marrowport

9. Lodestone

10. Full House

11. Cork in the Bottle

12. Pepperpot

13. What Goes Up

14. Grain of Salt

15. Balm (and P.O.V.)

16. Bloody Mary

17. Colony

Colony reviews
Kolchak: The Night Stalker story. "Extraordinary claims call for extraordinary evidence, Darlin'. You're asking me to chase on out of here, go isolate myself and – if what you claim is true – just weaken and die out there alone somewhere? And why! Because you claim it's true? Uh-uh. Doesn't cut mustard. Prove it."

Bloody Mary reviews
Kolchak: The Night Stalker story. Another 'snapshot' story. "This fellow had come in a few hours ago, and had eased into a series of bourbons-on-the-rocks like a guy slipping into a warm bath. He hadn't said more than two words to me since about three glasses ago..."

Interview (Before a Vampire) reviews
Kolchak: The Night Stalker. They met, pre-Skorzany. "Mr. Vincenzo, there's a man here to see you..." "Okay. Tell him to wait, Jamie, I have to finish–" He glanced up in surprise. The man stood in front of his desk already, holding a handful of typed papers. Jamie at the door rolled her eyes significantly, and left, slowly closing the door behind her.

What Goes Up reviews
Kolchak: The Night Stalker story. We both stared at number board above door which showed we were approaching the seventeenth floor, but not there yet. My mouth hung open for few seconds of shock as I tried to convince myself this wasn't happening. The stranger let out a slow breath with his jaw set hard. "Like a fly in his fist," were the first words he spoke out loud.

Cork in the Bottle
A stand-alone second half of the story started in 'Full House'. "I've researched many a newspaper story in my day, and thanks to this vast general knowledge on a plethora of subjects, I know this; that the average human body can go three minutes without oxygen, three days without water, and three months without food. I was doing fine on the oxygen-thing..."

A Paramount Predicament reviews
A little story concerning how our three heros would handle the *one* environment they were not prepared for: the Star Trek set in Hollywood.

Grain of Salt
Kolchak:The Night Stalker story. Another 'snapshot'. "He frowned into the inky darkness of the cave as it deepened to black beyond his sight, and aimed his flashlight beam as far as it would reach into the darkness. It did not bounce back."

Pepperpot reviews
Kolchak: The Night Stalker story. One-shot. "Are you a god–" he asked. "–or a monster?" My eyebrows raised. Not a question I've been often asked. Hmmm. I didn't answer right away, but considered. "Neither nor, last time I checked." I answered cautiously...

Full House reviews
Kolchak:The Night Stalker story. One-shot; a snapshot of Kolchak's unusual life. "It's not the dead bodies, per se, that are the threat," Kolchak answered frowning at the cards he had been dealt. After a moment of reflection, he added as an afterthought "... most times."

Connecting The Dots reviews
Kolchak: The Night Stalker story. Things that don't make sense often come up on Kolchak's beat, but this latest homicide really takes the cake. "In my peripheral vision, something joined the bees in the air. Dots. Lines of dots in strings. Odd. Faded, they were, subtle... "

A Slice of Life reviews
Kolchak: The Night Stalker story. "You lost it, Carl. Don't you remember? You really lost it." Fair warning: mild profanity.

Little Romani Tearoom reviews
Kolchak: The Night Stalker story. Carl has left Las Vegas behind him. Takes place between Vegas and Seattle, as he is crossing the country leaving want-ads in major cities, looking for Gail. "Like the finest of detectives, she observed every detail and skillfully built a theory for the man whose future she was about to read. Questionable fashion sense to say the least... "
