I am hoping to add more free to read stories here in the very near future. I do not consider myself a short story writer, but occasionally I come up with an idea that I like enough to write down even if it cannot be developed into something the size of a novel.

To begin with, I offer these two titles:

The Demon of Harlech

This piece was entirely written for fun. I went to college in Harlech and still have a fondness for North Wales. Eorl Aelfgar of Mercia was in the area when trying to revoke his exile to Ireland by King Edward. As Aelfgar was the lord of both Coenred and Sigbert it seemed like an opportunity to cast a little light on their early days together as huscarls. Please click on the link below to read the story.

I am a fan of science fiction, not that there is much science in this story. I am not sure where it came from, to be honest, but it struck a chord with me. I think it is more a piece of social commentary, just set in the near future and a bit dystopian to boot!
