Short Stories

Into Light — Experimental fantasy short story. My goal was to write a story with mysterious elements that would only be fully understood upon reading it a second time. (2005.)

Sylvie’s Tale — Simple fantasy short story. It made a little kid smile, so I’m happy with it. (2004.)

Alpha — Scripts for the first 100 pages of a science fiction parody webcomic. It mostly served as a character design exercise, and my personal notes have all the remaining characters fleshed out for use in future projects. (2002.)

Most characters are the creation of my collaborators, but this piece shows my setup of a greater plotline.
