This is a thread where I share links to the short stories I've written over the years on my writing blog. I really wanted to post the full text of the stories here, but I've found that this forum apparently has a character limit that gets in the way. Any feedback on these stories is welcome.

I'll start with an alt-history/magical realism adventure I wrote late last year:

Barrow of the Grail
In a parallel world where the North African Moors conquered Britain, a Moorish princess must uncover an ancient Brythonic grail in order to heal her ailing father.

I can easily increase the limit, but I'm not sure publishing entire stories here is a great idea. There aren't proper formatting options for fiction, and I think having several thousands of words in a single post will become unpractical. A single post has no pages, so it will be a matter of scrolling endlessly. You can't mark your place if you stop reading unless you split the story up into several posts.

But if you want to give it a try, let me know how many characters you would want for a post and we can give it a try.

Understood. I guess linking to my stories off-site is the best approach, then.
