Sample a Selection
of My Short Stories
These few are, with some exceptions, truly short stories - no more than three or four pages, mostly.
Take your time - enjoy!
By all means, please do share with others, if you wish. But, please also: allow all others to read them for free, as you are now. Thanks.
Basketball Blues: Not everybody likes that game. But some are driven to it.
Parallax Error: Looking in a mirror is always problematic - especially when you're not properly focusing.

The Major and The Miners: Children learn to do what parents tell them. Unhappily, some of the time, only too, too well.
Want: Needs are usually more urgent than wants. Until you reach a breaking point.
Sundae: Nothing like a good fruit salad with ice-cream - hmmm-yum. But it all depends on how you make it.
Incognito: When making friends, where the truth lies, lies the truth. Always.

Road Kiln: Every animal on a road is a potential casualty, anytime. So, shit happens, sometimes.
Walkers of the world: A nice walk each morning can be very relaxing. And, sometimes even more so.
Doubt: Probably the emotion we most experience most of the time. But only for the uninformed.
T(h)rust: Where trust in one's betters can lead anybody astray. Anytime.
Certainty: Even when you think you know, it just ain't so....
