Monochromatic by Ian Battaglia

This is a collection of short stories I write weekly, under the banner of Monochromatic. While there are consistent themes and interests, there’s no through line for the work. The genre swings from sci-fi to fantasy to realistic fiction and back. The stories vary in length, but are mostly short, intended to be quick reads. Perhaps comparable to the . . .

Grin The Cheat by mooderino

Only heroes have to fight fair.

There was a time when heroes roamed between the Four Great Cities. They fought for kingdoms and princesses and they lived and died by their valour. Or so the stories say. The way the minstrels sing it, everyone had a swashbuckling good time. Nowadays, buckles are rarely swashed. All the great beasts have been slain, all the great treasures . . .

THE SLUSH PILE

Too good for a slush pile!

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Jan 22, 2017: The Slush Pile is a collection of about 35 short stories, most science fiction or futuristic, with a fair sprinkling of horror, urban fantasy, and real life. It’s not always clear which of these a story is going to be when you start reading it, so I recommend you pick randomly from the table of contents rather than "Browse by Genre" to avoid spoilers!

These are the best kind of short stories, because they drop you right into an interesting scene [more . . .]

NORTH OF REALITY

Fun Nonsense and Short-short-fiction

By TCC Edwards, author of Far Flung

Mar 22, 2016: North of Reality is a delightfully eccentric collection of short fiction and entries that may have been taken from the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

There seem to be two main styles of entries on the blog. Some are self-contained pieces of fiction, like the poignant "Then Before If". These pieces seem to play around with physical and metaphysical concepts, making the reader think deeply about time travel and other such possibilities.
