The short story collections below feature, with few exceptions, stories that some magazine editor bought and paid for so they are not subject to the Dunning-Kruger effect. They might even be good!

(Warning! Arnos Hell and Fixing Forcalquier are subject to the Dunning-Kruger effect but I like them. The Brigstowe Dragons books were first published by a small press so somebody else liked them too.)

Arnos Hell

To save himself, his colleagues and his girlfriend Bob must overcome his greatest fear. A spooky supernatural tale laced with humour.

Fixing Forcalquier

Aided by a cobbler’s apprentice and his family they soon get involved with the court of Count Guilham of Forcalquier and his lovely daughter Garsenda.
