Kinney's Folly:

Short Stories by Pat Hartman

When Abbot Kinney built Venice, and especially after a big storm had washed most of it away before it was even finished, unkind people called the whole project Kinney's Folly.

....which is the title I've chosen for this collection of stories, varying from 1000 words to novella-length. They're about the people of Venice, and some of the same characters show up in different stories. The one with asterisks are "extra spicy."

If the title is colored and underlined, you can read it here.

The others are as yet unpublished.
