Admittedly, these pages are not strictly about fatherhood. They are a crass attempt to build interest in my fiction writing. To that end, I am collecting here a group of short stories that I have written and posted previously on other websites. These stories were all written to fit the parameters of the hosting site; they all have word count limits and the subject matter of each was chosen to meet the needs of the particular site. This means they are relatively short, which makes them more attractive for reading online.
