Just Keep Weaving

I love short stories, both reading and writing them.  As a reader, I often discover new favorite writers in the pages of an anthology.  As a writer, I approach short fiction as opportunities to experiment with new styles, techniques, voices, even genres.  So this collection of short stories, mostly reprints, ranges from Arthurian fiction to historical ghost stories, and along the way includes mystery, flash fiction, sword & sorcery, fantasy inspired by myth and folklore, and one or two stories that are impossible to classify.

The cover art is a painting by John Waterhouse, depicting the Lady of Shallot in the moments before she looked up from her loom and glimpsed Lancelot. The title, “Just Keep Weaving,” strikes me as good (and only slightly smart-ass) advice, and not just to the Lady.  Keep weaving the tale; don’t get distracted by the shiny new idea riding by in sunlit armor.

    Is it available in print, or only as an ebook?

      Hi, John. This is currently ebook only, but one of my goals for 2015 is to do the necessary formatting and have it available as print-on-demand paperback though Amazon’s Create Space.
