A Horde of Stories

If you spot a hotlinked title, that means the story is available somewhere in the wilds of the Web and can be read at your leisure. I’ll add hotlinks to all the journal and zine titles in time, so that you can find your way to some nifty places. If you revisit the homepage also keep an eye out for the “Wiggedies” tag, which will bring you to stories written once upon a time in response to very specific prompts. If I like them just as they are (and don’t think they would be a good fit for any venue that comes to mind), I’ll go ahead and post them here somewhere down the line.
