I hope you will enjoy encountering my fiction through the links below. I have listed stories by publication year and from newest to oldest going down. Regardless of when published, reprints appear directly beneath the link to the original story. For stories from magazines that have closed or are otherwise unavailable, links will take you to PDFs of the published pieces. If any of the links below do not work, please send me a note and I will see about correcting them. Thank you.
