Thank you for supporting my writing. This tier is the heart of my Patreon. Every Monday morning you'll have access to an exclusive new flash fiction story to start your week.  Over the year that's fifty two completely individual stories. Each one a little slice of horror or magic just for patrons

When you sign up, give me a location and I will write you a piece of flash fiction based on the what3words code for that place ( )




My name is Steve Toase and I write very short stories.

Over the past few years I have become known for my flash fiction. The type of thing you can read at a bus-stop or while getting the baby to sleep. The type of story that's perfect in those slivers of time between everything else that grabs your attention. That's what this Patreon is about.

For six years I've set myself an annual challenge of writing a flash fiction story a day for a month. These have always been well received and I thought it would be nice to make these stories available on a more regular basis.

My work has appeared in Shimmer, Lackington’s, Aurealis, Not One Of Us, Cabinet des Feés and Pantheon Magazine amongst others. In 2014 Call Out (first published in Innsmouth Magazine) was reprinted in Best Horror of the Year 6, and two of my stories have just been selected for Best Horror of the Year 11.

From 2014 I worked with Becky Cherriman and Imove on Haunt, the Saboteur Award shortlisted project inspired by my own teenage experiences, about Harrogate's haunting presence in the lives of people experiencing homelessness in the town.
