Short Stories

On the drop down menu associated with this page, you’ll find some of my short stories, though not all. Some are just too awful to release into the wild, others have become bits of something else. Some of these have been published before, some of them are seeing the light of day for the very first time. Be warned, the stories available for your perusal on this site are the writings of an unfinished author, and don’t reflect my work today.

The majority of the earlier stories were written for a small writing group hosted on Facebook (reconstituted in 2012 on WordPress, currently dormant). The core members were Matt Keefe, Gavin Thorpe, and myself, with appearances from Jes Bickham, Aidan Haley, and Andy Smillie. It was imaginatively entitled “The Quota”, because we were supposed to write a quota of one story a month (rarely fulfilled) and “The Group”. This shocking lapse in originality aside, it helped improve all our writing.

Below is a list of all the short stories and novellas that I have written since I became serious about writing. Publication listed alongside (if any).
