Short Stories

4-24-2022: Content is being selectively restored. If you have an interest in a piece “withdrawn” do not be bashful; ask for it to be restored. Time permitting, I may do so, but only if asked.

ALL SHORT STORY CONTENT HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN

Young Adult and Children

The short stories immediately following were written for my grands.

General Audiences (unless indicated NSFW)

Some other stories ended-up “short” because they lost steam (but hopefully, not readability) before reaching novella or novelette boundaries.  In those cases, front- and back-ends might have been lopped-off to make them fit “short.”

There are some NSFW (surprise!) entries. Anything above “Flash” in length usually takes long enough to mature, so I remember to tag them “NSFW.” But not always.

  • Nose Job -12/17/2020 Ever had a “pimple” that wasn’t a pimple? Frustrating, right? Here’s my story.
  • Quarter to Two – 12/17/2020 Coffee with a buddy who never seems to remember his hearing aids.
  • Puppet Man – 6-Part serial – a day in the the life of a Deputy Sheriff. Approximately a 32 minute read (restored)
  • Spellcheck Spasms – 2020 Fanciful recounting of an old computist’s struggles with autocorrection insaneware. Based more than you think on personal experience. (Restored and opening in a new page, August 2022)
