Hi, I'm Gregory Short, and I am a writer. I've been addicted to words for more than forty years, and I need your help. I keep stringing words together and I need you to make sense of them. You might even derive gross amounts of enlightenment from them.

These words often come in the form of poetry, essays, and short stories. But other words are lining up to form longer works. Your reward for spending your precious time with me here is a sneak peek at what I'm writing. Those of you who are truly insane and willing to toss coins my way will receive riches beyond your wildest dreams. Become a Patron and watch the words erupt on your screen. Extreme generosity is rewarded with WORDS IN THE MAIL! Typed. The old-fashioned way. On a typewriter. Manual. As in "not electric."

Being an idea man, I'm always juggling a number of projects, the greater of which include

  • Lulu & Mimi Share Hair (children's picture book; submitting)
  • A Sparrow in the Title (poetry collection; writing)
  • The Secret Power of Henry Finch (novel; writing)
  • The Little Book That Will Save the World (essay collection; writing)
  • The Vinyl Community's Guide to Record Collecting (nonfiction; researching)

Now have a look around. You never know what you might find.
