Short Stories

A selection of my short stories for adults

  • Minimus

    I am ridiculous to you – deformed, abnormal, inhuman. Why do you see me as a beast? I am a man.

  • The Embarrass­ment of Rubuth­not

    Could I have prevented what happened? Perhaps. But what happened to Rubuthnot was his own fault. I am convinced of that.

  • Quiet as a Mouse

    I’m not sure why I did it. Sure, the window was ajar and all the lights were out. And I had been drinking. But that’s not a reason.
