More Lost Memories (Lost and Not Found, #3)

A collection of short stories that transform scenes from Forget What You Can’t Remember, expand and explore its settings, and answer questions left unanswered there, all while giving these stories -each unique and worthwhile on its own, but not relevant to the main story arc of that novel- the chance to exist and to entertain.

From the back cover:

Lost and Not Found follows an author’s attempts to write a novel in a month, then follows him into a world more fanciful than his own stories.
 
Forget What You Can’t Remember begins with a minor character from Lost and Not Found, adds a zombie outbreak and a cataclysm, and spins itself off in a new direction, following trauma, exploring ethics, and taking obsessions too far.
 
More Lost Memories is a collection of short stories, each connected to Forget What You Can’t Remember by a minor character, a passing situation, or an unanswered question therein. While giving more depth and more details to the people and events of that novel, nine more narratives are revealed. Sex, pain, violence, and zombies, tech support for a flying city, religious prophecies fulfilled, true love and lasting marriage, re-engineered doomsday devices, gourmet cannibalism…
…and a whole lot more.

Stories include:

About the Author

Teel is an independent author, artist, creative visionary, blogger, publisher, podcaster, and sometimes filmmaker.

Teel is happily married to an English teacher and they live together in Phoenix, AZ with a cat which does not appreciate having Teel read his books aloud to it nearly as much as you probably would. While satisfied with never having to shovel the desert’s heat from his driveway, Teel is interested in experiencing more travel in his life—especially of sorts like “through time” and “to other planets,” so feel free to invite him along if you’re going.

Pay Attention -A Zombie Story- (from More Lost Memories)

Story Description:

This story looks at the situation at a zombie readiness training camp during its final weeks of training before a full-scale zombie outbreak. It follows the two men who are tasked with keeping the camp running while the man in charge -The Sergeant- is distracted, and how this lapse of management goes horribly awry. It also gives a glimpse of what happened with Mary, a woman totally unprepared for what she’s gotten herself into, and who goes on not only to survive the zombie outbreak, but to become one of the central characters of Forget What You Can’t Remember.

How to Disappear Completely (a story from More Lost Memories)

Story Description:

This story may not seem to have much to say on a first reading, or out of context of the companion novel, but for readers who pay attention to detail and like to think, I think there’s plenty to enjoy here: How To Disappear Completely really helps fill in the other side of a part of Skythia’s story, from the perspective of the Skythian employees who were tasked with trying to hide their flying city from some unknown, unseen apocalypse. Falling mostly between chapters 5 and 7 of Forget What You Can’t Remember, if you pay close attention you can see some of the ways the ‘doomsday event’ they were trying to protect themselves from changed their lives in ways they didn’t even notice.

*I have made this eBook free across as many stores as I’m able because I don’t think it makes much sense without having read Forget What You Can’t Remember, but also because I think it gives a good taste of how the stories of More Lost Memories extend and complete the world for those who have read the novel.

Welcome to The Family (a story from More Lost Memories)

Story Description:

This story is about a strange group of cyborgs—not people with robotic limbs or organs, but whose physiology at a cellular level is a co-mingling of organic and robotic components. Cyborgs whose gross physiology bears no resemblance to the people they were before becoming members of this tight-knit group known as ‘The Family.’ This story, really, is about a boy in love, and the lengths he’ll go to to try to save the girl he loves from succumbing to the fate he himself has fallen prey to. Will he be able to protect her from becoming a member of The Family?

They Stole God (a story from More Lost Memories)

Story Description:

This story is one of my favorites from More Lost Memories, delving into theology, cosmology, ethics & morality, while telling a tale that ends up containing dramatic & violent bank robberies and the violation of the sanctity of religious dogma—by force. Follow a group of monk-like religious adepts and their friends as they find that the deeper into the secrets of their religion they delve, the more impossible their escape from its clutches becomes. Some readers may want to look up the nature of such far-flung physics concepts as dark matter, dark energy, and the nature of singularities to understand the full scope of theology herein, and others will just want to know what strange plan they come up with next.

The Greater Good (a story from More Lost Memories)

Story Description:

This story is more of a series of philosophical dialectics than it is a proper story. It explores a complex ethical situation from the perspective of a group that emphatically denies that it has a right to life, or any say in whether it lives or dies. It uses entirely fictionalized religious iconography, dogma, and symbolism to examine issues and situations you may recognize from the world around you. When one group is unable or unwilling to take a stand or defend itself, deferring entirely to another, whose right is it to protect or destroy any one -or all- of that group? Buy it now to explore these ideas, and more.

Self-Serve (a story from More Lost Memories)

Story Description:

This story follows one man’s quest to share himself totally through his preferred form of creative expression—his cooking. Taking available technology into untouched ethical ground, Lance goes further to give himself over to his restaurant’s patrons than many people are comfortable with. The second part of this story is told through a lengthy culinary review of Lance’s restaurant, rather than a traditional narrative.

Story Description:

This story is about a supervillain who -after his first several attempts to wreak havoc on and around the flying city in which he lives are thwarted, and his superhero nemesis is coincidentally erased from existence- goes even more insane than he was before.

Find out what he designs, and where that line of thought ends up taking him, in this strange story about a stranger, mad man.

Happy Anniversary

by Teel McClanahan III, Copyright © 2002-2009
A SciFi/Fantasy short story

Available as:
Podcast; ~2 episodes, FREE

Story Description:

This story was adapted from parts of the first draft of Lost and Not Found which didn’t make it into the original release, and extends the story of that book’s protagonist and love interest as they journeyed to the flying city of Skythia where most of Forget What You Can’t Remember takes place. This part of their story was later integrated back into the Lost and Not Found – Director’s Cut, and other than buying or downloading the full More Lost Memories collection, the only way to experience Happy Anniversary is as a part of the Lost and Not Found – Director’s Cut.
