The Taste of Freedom by Me (Alan Green).
Previously published on the ABC Tales writing site where it won their Freedom short story competition.
“Candy floss, colf coffee and stolen marmalade sandwiches. The sweet taste of freedom, my friends. My very first taste.”
The nice people at ABC Tales have just opened a new writing competition. There isn’t a set theme to the new one but you have to use the phrases “black shoes” and “prawn sandwich”. Why not give it a go?
A tale of love, second chances and magic. Featuring a beast from nightmare, a difficult journey to school, a woman with terrible dress sense, the fearful consequences of messing with time and a lost balloon.
Let’s Start Again by Alan Green
Introducing the first story on the new platform that didn’t make an appearance on the old one.
(edit) ‘The God Kings’‘ was my first paid short story publication. It is a science fiction story about the conflict between the temptations of god-hood and the joys of fish and chips (amongst other things).
This story was previously published in Alien Skin Magazine.
If you enjoy our short stories you might also enjoy ‘Damn Faeries’. A fine collection of modern faeries stories, full of dark humour, magic and other good stuff.
Featuring ‘The Stairs’ by me (Alan Green).
