Short Stories

Every couple of years I write a book of short stories by accident. If I think they’re any good I have someone tie me to a chair, grit my teeth and edit them. When they’re edited I I send them off to about three publishers who then say “no thankyou, not at the moment.” Then the process is finished until next time.
I put the stories up on the website and and carry on painting.

Most of these are from a collection called “In the Garden of the Shadow Fish.”
