Short stories

Sisyphean Gambit

Do you know someone who has a job that sucks? Sure you do. But do you know whose job really sucks? Monsters. They got it bad. My upcoming short story, “The Sisyphean Gambit,” is a dark-humoured tale about a monster-under-the-bed who hates its job.

Prairie Fire Magazine published “The Sisyphean Gambit” in April 2019.

Naive Gods

Longlisted for a 2017 SunburstAward for Excellence in Canadian Literature of the Fantastic, “Naive Gods” appeared in the anthology, Lazarus Risen, published by Bundoran Press. Technology has banished death. For Daniel, this is a curse. He is a first generation immortal. Born in the age before immortality, he has known loss. His friends and family have all died. Now, he lives in a world where no one understands what it means to grieve, and his body keeps marching forward through time while his heart remains trapped in the past.
