General Fiction

Save The Whales?:  Maybe it’s not such a good idea after all?

What Goes Up Must Come Down:  A modern company will do anything to protect its brand.  It’s not technically murder if no one’s really dead.

Avatar:  A man finally gets to meet his neighbors. And wishes he hadn’t.  By the way, this story was written in 2007 and therefore has nothing to do with the movie.  “Avatar” is the name of a dog who plays a major role in the story.  I gave him the name Avatar as an ironic salute to Lion in William Faulker’s “The Bear.”

The Homecoming:  Meeting an old friend after many years can sometimes change lives.

The Sign:   A young graffiti artist meets some gullible extraterrestrials.

The Wedding:   A celebration of the progress of the human race.

Tales of The PanGalactic Empire–A series of unrelated stories about the future of the human race.

Failed Experiment:   Not every experiment and theory work out according to plan. The problem is that it’s hard to clean up after some.

Lost World:   Evolution works, as long as you don’t tamper with it.

The Pardon:   An old crime proves to be even worse with the passage of time.

Rebirth:  The end of the world isn’t necessarily the end.

Unexpected Utopia:   Sometimes things that shouldn’t be, just are.

Suffer The Children:   Society is supposed to protect its most vulnerable. At what cost?

A Black and White Affair:  A civil war on a distant planet has an unusual cause.

  1. I’ve just read “The Bus Ride”. It kept me guessing almost to the end. Hugely effective and affecting.
