Short Stories (1500-9,999 Words)

This short story section is for stories that are longer than my ficlets (1500 words) but not as long as my novellas, which are between 10,000-30,000 words.

I’ve arranged the stories in chronological order, going in reverse order beginning with the most recent story. Alternate Universe stories are set at the very bottom.
