I have compiled five or my favourite short stories from the past couple years into one volume, available for 99 cents from Amazon.com.
These stories are totally varied, but there are few common themes running throughout that I thought tied them all together.
The Downtown Rutting of the Stags
3 teenage friends take a trip downtown to find a good time. Things take a turn when Jimmy gets on the wrong side of a drug dealing bouncer in a seedy strip joint.
A Farmer’s Short Version of The End
A farmer and his wife defend their garden produce from neighbour thieves in the near-future.
Who is the one that saved the boy’s life as he lay dying on the beach?
Under the Falls
A northern Ontario working expedition meets danger on the ice in the fog.
Waking Up Cold
Another near-future tale of farm-life without any electricity or fuel.
The Power has Gone Out
A look at three separate situations that people are locked into when the power goes out for the last time.
I hope you enjoy them!
