Free Stories

I know. Free stories (and a poem or two). Totally free!

I am a writer, it’s the main thing I do with my life – write stuff.

Each time a submission is rejected, a little piece of the author dies, and goes to rest in some dark, dank place inaccessible to anyone, anyone. The desire to share (read: show off) said stories runs deep and looking at them in a file, gathering cobwebs and such-like can be rather humiliating, to say the least.

So, I present for your delectation (or derision) a hodge-podge of miscellaneous stuff that sometimes did, and sometimes didn’t, make it to the publishing stage.

And did I mention they’re free?
