I've fallen in love with the names of the Paris Metro and RER stations.  Named after people, places and events, they are a gateway for the curious into the history and culture of Paris.

I am writing a story for every station in Paris.  These stories will be inspired by the names of the stations, and by the history of Paris, though they will not be true histories. Instead, I hope to create an underground world, where historical or mythic figures interact with fictional characters to create the histories that might have been.  Some of the stories will be linked, others will stand alone, and the stories will span a range of genres.  At this stage, all the stories will be in English.

The stories will be published every 4 weeks on my website, www.storiesunderparis.net, with a minimum of 15 new stories to be published in 2018, in addition to the 42 stories that have already been published there.  As the story network grows, readers will be able to navigate from story to story along the lines of the Metro.  The station pages will also contain brief essays about the actual history of the station and the people or things it was named for. 

I hope you enjoy your stay in my alternate Paris.
