Warning! The stories and poems on this page are of wildly diverse genres. Currently featured are Fantasy, Fiction, Horror, Non-Fiction, Poetry, Anime Fan Fiction, and a collection of links.

While the authors may vary in skill and ability, all share a common love for the craft of writing. The stories linked to this page meet two criteria: they are all short to medium length stories or poems, and I like them (and I hope you will too). If you like what you read here (or even if you don't), please let the authors know. A little encouragement or constructive criticism goes a long way. Besides, it's nice to know that someone is reading your story!

Help Find Missing Authors!
