Flameboy is a story about love, friendship and accidentally bursting into flames.


The Earlies is a story about death. Jim is seventy-six and he knows he won’t see seventy-seven. He is dying and this is his last day on earth: should he leave the past buried or should he tell the world about that day where he was The Hero? This story takes place in the not too distant future when euthanasia or assisted suicide is a human right.
