Bibliography

Some of the stories below were brought together in my debut collection, Angel Dust, from Ticonderoga Publications in late 2014. Stories that had only appeared in print and were included in the collection are listed here, but links to read them online have been taken down. Red story titles link to pages on this website where you can read stories that appeared in print or in since-deceased online markets and were not included in the collection (or that I’m not currently trying to flog reprint rights for). Red publication titles link to external sites where you can read or hear stories free online, including a few from Angel Dust. Red book titles link to pages where you can find links to buy the books. Stories published in print since the collection came out will be linked here once their exclusivity periods expire.
