Project Enterprise Short Stories by Pauline Baird Jones
Two short stories from the Project Enterprise universe:
Men in Jeans: A romantic suspense mystery and Steam Time: A romantic steampunk adventure
Men in Jeans
A romantic suspense mystery
Richard Daniels thinks life can’t any stranger working at Area 51until he gets assigned to find out where a Houston area SF writer gets the ideas for her books. Should be an easy assignment—if it weren’t for the dead guy in her back yard and the non-business related ideas she’s giving him. (Originally appeared in the Death in Texas anthology)
A romantic steampunk adventure
The man formerly known as Tobias Smith hadn’t planned to ride along with Dr. Everly and his Medicine Show. Grifters gave him a pain their elixirs couldn’t heal. But he was headed to Marfa, too. And Everly’s son turned out to be a really a fine looking damsel—one in distress when the ghost lights of Marfa bump them into an alternate reality complete with an automaton gang and airships. Could he be the good guy? Be the hero, save the day and get the girl?
