Anyone know if there is a site where the Stories written by T.O.M. and others like him can be found.
They were mostly on Frugal Squirrel but even the archives are dead over there.

Hate to lose all the great stories.

I don't know how many stories he wrote, or current on-line sites that are still hosting them. I have several of his stories saved in my prep document collection that people have been getting cloned copies of for the past several months.

This looks to be the best location for them.  Gary wrote a LOT of stories and was a good friend that I kept in communication with until his death.  Every so often, he'd send me an email saying "you know, I was rereading this and found this" with errors I never picked up.

He's certainly missed in the community as a storyteller and as a person who took the time to encourage new writers.

I don’t miss him or his lame attempts at writing at all.

It was the same story recycled over and over and over.  No character ever had to work for anything it was always “mana from heaven” and almost nothing in his stories were realistic.

The only thing worse was fleataxi.
