Welcome to Giant's Reach, a fantasy world with just a twist of science fiction! I write short stories and flash fiction, and you can find both right here on the patreon.

If it's flash fiction you're after - 700-1000 words, just perfect to read or listen to over a coffee - then look no further than my podcast - less than ten minutes long, and completely free! It's available to listen to on Apple podcasts and Google Podcasts, or almost anywhere you get your podcasts - just search for Giant's Reach! Alternatively, if you want to read them onscreen, you can click here!

Looking for a place to start? Two of my all-time favourites are Salon Animalé and Healer!

Wanting more? From just $3/month you can get a short story, craft exclusively for this patreon, every month! As a taster, here are two short stories from the world of Giant's Reach, both available for free:

'Uplifted': Gita, the daughter of a nobleman, begins to find her way in the world as a soldier in the army. But life in the Duke's Guard is very different to that which she has known, and both Gita and her feline counterpart, Nané, soon find themselves fighting for their very survival.
Click for PDF, for web, or for Kindle format.

'Feathered Death': a tale of grizzled war veterans trying to find a place in a world that has moved on, previously published in Broadswords and Blasters 2. When Dirk, a hero in his own lifetime, finds himself fallen on hard times, he goes looking for the elite fighter that felled his partner: the deadly Copperback.

Thanks for your support, and I look forward to sharing my world with you!

At this level, I'll be able to commission artists to provide illustrations to complement the monthly short story. Patrons at the Gyb level and above will receive these alongside the stories.
