Do The Dead Dream? Dead Monarch Butterfly Oct 11, 2015

I started writing short stories (and some poems) at a single-digit age and have continued to write them throughout my adult life. Since I’ve taken to the long form (novels) short stories have taken a back seat (I’ve really missed writing them!)…but I’ve always wanted to post some of them, since becoming a blogger.

So, I will begin periodically posting some of my better work, here. Eventually, I do plan on compiling them all into a short story collection…but for now…

My first short story will be “Tail Gunner,” which had been published in the 2012 Longmont, Colorado Public Library’s anthology, “The You Belong Collection: Writings and Illustrations from Longmont Area Residents.

Feel free to send the stories out into the world, just please attribute them to me with the copyright dates.

I hope you, too, enjoy some of the weirdness I’ve envisioned!

    Good for you, Frank. I’ve always liked the short story. I don’t understand why they’ve fallen out of favor in modern times. You’d think that our shortened attention spans would make them MORE popular, but no.

    Sure, a longer-form story enables you to flesh out characters and create more complex situations, but I don’t think that’s always a plus. It takes real talent to create a whole world and tell a great story in only a few pages (or, to use another medium, in the 25 minutes of a Twilight Zone episode). So … wishing you luck as you post some of your shorter work here!
