Tired Tapir Press has now put out an ebook of my short stories for children: Dragon Brother. Most of the stories in it have been published in various children’s magazines in the genre. There are a dozen ten stories in it. (That’s what I get for trying to go from memory late in the evening.) My adult stories are coming soon from Tired Tapir, but there are more of them, so they will take a bit longer.


I have lots of stories, so we decided to go with the collection model rather than the individual story model. I have no idea what people will think of it, but honestly, short stories do not get you fame and fortune regardless of which model you’re using, so–stories, I have ‘em, you can have ‘em too.

Collections! Yay!

Could you please define "children"? I have niecephews in the 12-16 range-- have they gotten too old to appreciate these? Will they be old enough again in ten years or so?

Yes! I am eager for this information from the other side, as the auntie of an 8 year old whose parents don't want her not reading anything excessively dark yet.

I believe she will be in the sweet spot for this collection.

For the purposes of this collection, that's probably not children. I mean, I hope all ages can enjoy these stories, but in practical terms the main audience will be people who have grown up to enjoy children's stories, and also probably ages 7 to 10.

There are a dozen stories in it.

Actually only ten.
