Complimentary Fiction

The good folks over at Ares Magazine are making one fiction selection available online — completely free — for each issue.  You can read my novella “Mr. Pell,” from Issue #3, and check out their online exclusives in the Ares Online tab.


  1. I just read Mr. Pell and look forward to reviewing it on my next Short Story Reviews post. For now I’ll say I was hesitant about this story at first as I judged its premise based on the first few paragraphs, but it won me over with powerful storytelling. I was almost brought to tears by the characters and their tragic world. Loved it.

      Wow, thank you, Neal! It is very gratifying to hear that the story moved you, and I appreciate you sticking it out through a conceit you found iffy.
