  1. The Barnstable Chronicles: Book 5 - Beautiful Boy

    By FlyOnTheWall, in Fiction. 05/15/2020 (Updated: 06/01/2020)

    The fifth book in The Barnstable Chronicles is probably the most requested story.

    Beautiful Boy is the story of Noah Danner, the son of Charlie and Jacob. Noah has always been a favorite character of my readers. YOU SHOULD READ STITCHER AND THE PRODIGY BEFORE READING THIS STORY!

    My challenge is to tell the story from Noah's point of view and remain faithful to his character. At the same time, great care has been taken to be non-offensive.

  2. Collections

    By RichEisbrouch, in Non-Fiction. 01/10/2019 (Updated: 05/19/2020)

    This is a collection of my short non-fiction pieces.

    It's mostly lightweight stuff, just written to make you smile or laugh.

    This collection parallels that of my short fiction on this site -- Circumstances. Also, pretty lightweight.

    Enjoy.

  3. Prickly Prompts

    By aditus, in Fiction. 05/11/2019 (Updated: 04/29/2020)

    A new collection of prompts and shorts.

  4. Barnegat Bay

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 09/27/2019 (Updated: 04/27/2020)

    Barnegat Bay is a romance, which starts on the Jersey shore in the summer of 1932. It focuses on its narrator, Doc, and his friends Mike, Larry, Al, and Spence, summer lifeguards soon headed into their senior year at CCNY -- the City College of New York. This is in the uncertain times and job market of the still early years of the Great Depression, just before Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected. Joining the guys are Mary and Claire, local to the area but no less ambitious for their lives, and in fairly close by New York City, Doc's parents.

    It may initially seem an odd book for this site, but, believe me, it's not.

  5. Reckoning

    David Henderson's parents were splitting up, and David was off to stay for a few weeks with his favorite grandfather in the city while his mom and dad sorted out a few things. David was not happy with this abrupt change in his life, but had decided there was nothing to do but go with it. He loved visiting his grandfather, and figured he would at least spend the two-week visit having some fun.

    But soon a small mystery cropped up, followed by a meeting with someone new and special. And in almost no time, David's world was to change forever.

  7. Dead Body Inside

    By Arran, in Fiction. 02/22/2020 (Updated: 02/26/2020)

    This story, a short three-part adventure, is different from my others, hopefully to demonstrate my versatility.

  8. Trainwreck - A Very Guilty Pleasure

    By Wayne Gray, in Fiction. 01/01/2020 (Updated: 02/25/2020)

    Two serious writers named Frank and Ben take a stab at collaboration, and end up mired in a contract they never really wanted. This ... is their story.

    But first, a word from our sponsor.

    "As The Houseboat Floats brought to you in part by Fresh Lemon Dish soap and by, Pretty Package Boxers. For the man who likes to present well."

  9. PRIME Boomers, Gen Xers, & Millenials

    By Carlos Hazday, in Fiction. 02/01/2020 (Updated: 02/22/2020)

    Tony's a rising star in the family, having turned a dingy Brooklyn bowling alley into a hipster hot spot. When Grandfather Martellini asks him to lunch, Tony gets an offer he can't refuse. Can he pull the project off? Is Antonio Martellini ready for prime time?

  10. Chicago Wildlife

    By Young Sage, in Fiction. 05/05/2019 (Updated: 01/21/2020)

    For Camp NaNoWriMo, I had to write 10,000 words in 30 days. The result is two short stories in one. Here they are. Disappearance is a world class thief with ragdoll-like superpowers, and he has his eyes on the Nano Wrimo Diamond. Follow him as he encounters many world building...er, I mean, colorful distractions along the way, meeting up with basic characters that I'll flesh out in future stories...er...complex human beings who can't be boiled down to one or two character traits, and flop flop flop all the way to the bank (figuratively; the diamond is in a museum)! Just think of Disappearance as Male!Catwoman and you'll be all set.
