Speaking of Stories
Speaking of Stories… I recently received a mail from a friend who asked me what the easiest way was to read my stories on line. The interest is flattering and I’m happy to list the following sites where a couple of pieces of my work have been published, following a win/placement:
• Ha-Ha – A blackly comic story, with a twist. A runner up in the Limnisa/Bluethumbnail Competition: http://www.bluethumbnail.com/Author/ha-ha.html
• The Last of the Shower – A quirky and nostalgic punk looks to wake his dead bandmate: HISSAC Highlands and Islands Short Story Association Competition has ‘The Last of the Shower” on their site (which won the2011 Award). http://www.hissac.co.uk/2011_stories.html#first
• The Pretender – A tale with a twist and intrigue, which was ‘highly commended’ in the Twisted Stringybark competition. ‘The Pretender’ can be downloaded as part of an anthology: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/162482
Many more of my stories are published in anthologies or literary magazines, so you’d have to order. But if any of you would like to have a look at the above, I’d be delighted! Thanks for the interest, guys!

Enjoyed reading “The Last of the Shower.” Loved the premise — and the dialogue was just great. Funny, too.
