Online Fiction Sampler

This is not a comprehensive list by any means. It simply is what I come across, or remember, and then remember to put on this list. But every story here is one that I love, and I hope my friends who visit will love them, too.

    • I’m glad you found something that interested you. I just started this list, so it’s absurdly short right now, but I think it will grow as I remember stories I read a long time ago (I just thought of one) and run into new pieces. About half of these I found at the sites listed on the “Cool Sites for Writers and Readers” page – I’ve had a wonderful scavenger hunt!
