Nomesque Fiction is a collection of fictional short stories. Many of them belong to a series, and updates on selected series are added once or twice a week, as well as standalone short stories being added occasionally. Chaotic? Maybe. Fun? Always! :-)
Sorry, folks, it’s been dead as a doornail around here lately. On the bright side, it’s because I’m writing too much, not too little. I’m 20 000 words into Maisy May, and I’m going back and forth along the storyline so much that any attempt to post instalments is likely to suck. I think it’s close to finished – I’ll update soon :-)
About the Stories
Classic western fairytale (prince, princess, frogs, fairy godmothers and the like) meets modern day reality head on. We have a princess flashing her butt to win the heart of her peasant admirer, a kitten causing outrage at the local hospital – and of course, the traditional frog prince. Sounds girly and wussy? Check it out, you might be pleasantly surprised.
These are individual stories and, like all good fables, each has a moral. Juliette and the Beast has to be my favourite out of the lot. It’s about an abusive relationship, and what one woman puts up with because she thinks she should.
Silly little sci-fi series about a woman who blogs complete lies, and makes money from the advertising, because lots of people read her blogs and sympathise, or get excited for her, etc. Then she gets kidnapped by aliens – and she can’t breathe a word.
This series is NOT light and fluffy. Drugs, gangs, swearing, murder attempts, bad jokes. It’s about a guy who refuses to grow up, and the woman who’s committed to helping him out of his messes.
The future earth is REALLY crowded. So the government encourages its citizens to suicide to free up space for others. But suicide doesn’t mean you’re really dead…
Contributed by the talented Brian A Lynch. A woman wakes up in a new life, with caring flatmates but zero memories. Just some lightning-fast reflexes and some weird flashbacks.
Paranormal fiction? A teen girl is suddenly convinced that Heath Ledger speaks to her from beyond the grave… and that he’s been assigned as her spirit guide.
Maisy is a teen girl who, despite her cutesy name, has definite emo tendencies. She meets a boy named Mark – on the outside your perfect Christian boy. How do you find out who you really are while putting up a perfect front?
Linda is dead. She’s kinda peeved about that. What’s more, she seems stuck in ghost form. She’s obsessed with finding her body, but that’s a little harder than it sounds. So she resorts to taking creative, vicious revenge on her killer until he spills the beans. Dark, and possibly confronting in places, but hilarious in others.
Australia’s marsupial population has turned vicious overnight. Koalas are biting the hands that feed them, possums have developed a taste for blood, and the dogs and cats are considering staying in at night. Is a mystery virus to blame?
A link to each of the stories on Nomesque Fiction can be found on the left side of the page. They’re arranged by series. Some, but not all, contain links to the previous and next stories in the series. This bit is a work in progress – eventually all stories will be provided with simple navigation links like this.
The vast majority of work on this site is mine. The only exceptions, currently, are the Lucky Me stories – written by Brian A Lynch.
