Seventeen Short Stories

September 27, 2010

My current side project. One week in. Sometimes disastrous, sometimes satisfactory. Always impulsive.

One short story a day for seventeen days, until I see my fiancée again.

A rather short tale, scattered with pseudo-metaphors, for you to interpret as you see fit.

Accidental Time Travel

April 25, 2009

William takes a fantastic journey through spacetime, in textbook format, complete with graphics.  Read it here.

Ambiguology

April 16, 2009

In my experimentation as a writer, I am finding that it is at my most absurd and illogical that I am most content.  Ambiguology, one non sequitur after another, is a quaint tale that follows Tyler through a maze of religion, games, food, love, one strange old man, and a dog named Panda.  Your brain will likely formulate some thoughts while reading, so please leave questions or comments.

Elapse

March 28, 2009

Elapse is another personal favourite.  It’s an eloquent mix of death, time, love, and reality.  It was a hard tale to finally put to words, and probably another that I hope to someday expand.  It’s also the first story to feature a female protagonist.

The UnBook

March 22, 2009

My latest is a shorter short story which depicts an unusual relationship between the author and his characters, a recurring theme in some of my newer works.  I’m not sure if readers will understand the ending right away, so please post any questions or comments you like.  I am quite happy with this story, so I hope to transpose much of the theme and characters to an expanded work.

The City of Love

March 15, 2009

I realized recently that all last year, I only completely finished four short stories, all of which will be online soon. The City of Love is a personal favourite, which I wrote last August.  Thanks to Amanda for the inspiration, and to Katherine for help with the French (what little there is considering it takes place in Paris).

Steve

February 16, 2009

As the first and only short story I have published, Steve is the first of the short stories available for you to read.  It was originally written in the Fall of 2003, so my style has evolved a little over the years.  I recently revised Steve to give it more of a style and vision of how I have been writing lately.  It’s a curious and awkward tale that I hope you enjoy.  More stories soon.

Hello Cool World.

February 14, 2009

Hello all.  Soon, I will be uploading some of my short stories and other works to get your feedback.  In the meantime, here’s my current queue for reading that sits on a rather large pile on my desk, if you’re interested:

Scott Pilgrim 5: Scott Pilgrim vs. the Universe by Brian Lee O’Malley
All Families Are Psychotic by Douglas Coupland
The Insanity Defense by Woody Allen
The Dark Knight by Frank Miller
Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
The Elephant Vanishes by Haruki Murakami
Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut
The World of Karl Pilkington by Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, and Karl Pilkington
Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth by Chris Ware

And anything by Joshua Nichol (only because I have lots of proofreads to do, not because I’m awesome, which I’m not necessarily saying that I’m not).

Oh, and happy V-Day, lovers.
