Short stories!

I've decided to archive all my (published) short stories on my website, so they're there for anyone to read for free.

I figure, if I put one up every two weeks, I'll be done in six months or so.

The first story I'm putting up was the first story that I ever published. I wrote it just after I finished Clarion West in 2001, and the story was published in Realms of Fantasy in December 2002.

Looking back at the story, if I was writing it now, there are things I would do differently, and I'd certainly tighten up the writing, but I'm still pretty proud of this story. I still like it.

The story is Dawn, by the Light of a Barrow Fire, and you can read it here.

Next one in two weeks time...
