18 short fictions (free & online)

18 short fictions (free and online)UPDATE: I’ll leave all these dead links for posterity, but be warned, most of them don’t work. Anything in bold does.

Instead, I’ll suggest you just check out the fiction section of my website. You can also get a free ebook of short (absurd) fictions in my collection, Clown Apocalypse and Other Calamities. You just have to sign up for my email list!

In addition to writing novels, I do pen the occasional short fiction, and they add up over time.
