Prose

"... the fictitious character of reality."
—J. L. Borges

I've been writing stories since I was in the fourth grade. Don't worry, you won't find any of my really early efforts here. What you will find are PDF versions of my published works (which aren't many at this time) and lists of the works in my as yet unpublished collections (which are, for the most part, still in production). .

As always, I am interested in your thoughts. If you have comments or constructive criticism, send me an e-mail. In addition, before printing or copying any of the manuscripts presented below, please read my Rights Notice.

Warning: Some of these manuscripts contain adult language and situations. If you are offended by such content, I suggest that you exercise your freedom of choice and browse on to some other potentially less offensive literature.

Published Stories and Personal Essays

Most literary journals, reviews, and anthologies require First North American Serial Rights at the time of publication. Once a piece has been published on a Web site those rights have been lost. So I will not provide downloadable PDFs here, online, until a piece has been published elsewhere.


Novels

I haven't been lucky enough to have any of these published yet, but if you'd like to read a PDF version contact me and I'll e-mail you a copy.

Warning: These novels contain adult language and situations. If you are offended by such content, I suggest that you exercise your freedom of choice and browse on to some other potentially less offensive literature.

Of course, after you've read these novels, I'd enjoy hearing what you think. Constructive criticism is always welcome. Also, before printing or copying any of these novels please read my Rights Notice.


Collections Awaiting Publication

Over the years I've written hundreds of short prose pieces that I've compiled into themed book-length collections. I am in the process of filling in a few blanks and revising to better tie each collection into a cohesive unit. If you are intrigued by any of the titles, drop me a line and I'd be glad to send you a PDF version of what I have so far.


Accepted for Publication

None at this time.
