A Few of My Short Stories to Read FREE Online.
Full Disclosure: A lot of these story links will take you to my story on the Medium platform. Don’t worry they are my friend link that allows anyone to read no signup or anything. It’s still free to read.

Reading them does help support my work because I am part of the Medium Partnership Program. They pay me by reading time, so if you are subscribing member of Medium you’re reading my stories can earn me money for my work. If you have an account and clap it helps circulation and getting my stories shown to a wider audience.

Not all these stories are on Medium but the majority are. The ones not on Medium are still hosted on this site.

All stories should open in a separate browser, so you don’t have to leave this page if you are still looking and reading. That keeps the multi-content you are viewing access handy.

What happens when gods wane, retire, or just decide they need a change of employment?

13 writers in each anthology took up the challenge and let their imaginations run wild in these anthologies that are nearly-always amusing, somewhat insightful, and completely irreverent as we imagine the gods of yore in retirement.  Different tales of deities that are retired, reborn, waning, or AWOL from their assigned posts as they hilariously navigate life, death, and everything in between.
