Short Stories

Writers are always looking for ways to reach readers, and on my own path to find new readers I have posted “The Antinomy or Nikolaos of Myra”. Combining historical detail with the paranormal, this visceral novella takes you on a trip to a strange place that few ever experience. Originally a gift for my beautiful wife, I’m now sharing it on Wattpad. Happy Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Yule, Saturnalia, Solstice, Pancha Ganapati, and Yalda! You can also click here for a pdf file of THE ANTINOMY.

My short story “Mother” was picked up by Here be Monsters Anthology 8. Read it — I guarantee you’ll be creeped out, grossed out, disgusted…isn’t horror fiction great?

In a different vein, Ajax Quire, a highly trained agent working deep cover in the New York crime organization of Vince Di Carlo, isn’t an agent of any state intelligence service. His boss is a former MI6 operative calling himself Control. He recruited Quire from a Glasgow private school at the age of fourteen and paid for his training. For more on Quire read “Quotidian Fever“.

My previous online publications include two short stories, “Of Smelly Toilets and Wet Cheese” and “Triage”. Another story, “The Pythagorean Theorem” was short-listed for the 2006 CBC Literary Awards and The Writers’ Union of Canada 2010 Short Prose Competition for Developing Writers. “The Perseids” also made this short list.
