Short Stories

I don’t write a lot of short work. I prefer the larger canvas of the novel. And when I do write something short, finding a place to publish it can take years, and a lot of time managing the submission cycles. But that’s sort of at odds with the new age of publishing, and I don’t see the point in keeping a work out of circulation for that long.

So instead, I see short fiction as little samplers of my work. They’re also a great way to feed you, the insatiable mob of fans that hound my every waking moment. By throwing you an occasional meal of short fiction, I hope to keep you at bay and preserve the more delicate meat I call a body for as long as humanly possible.

Here then, are the stories I’ve released so far. Enjoy.
