My science fiction/golfing short story, Parting Shot, is now available on Amazon. (It took long enough. :)) Check it out. It costs only 49 cents to read.

http://www.amazon.com/Parting-Shot/dp/B000VKC33Q/ref=sr_1_20/002-0964550-7604015?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1188845987&sr=8-20

The story involves an aging golfer--a former phenom, a hotshot who pretty much wasted his career partying. Now, on the downslope of his career, he has one last chance at redemption.

I know this doesn't sound much like SF&F, but trust me, it's there. The possible redemption is as a result of an extraordinary (supernatural, perhaps) event. There are no wizards or aliens or high-tech gizmos. It's a character study of a man and a golf tournament (the US Open). The story is told partly from the POV of the lead character and partly by the TV golf announcers.

Mark.
