Short Stories

Several of my short stories have appeared in print. Some in
magazines and some in bound collections.

I intend to get at least half a dozen of those stories posted to the site, but as of now all I have is "Kludge."

Enjoy! And please check back soon for more short fiction by Jefferson Scott.







In Praise of Short Fiction

Short stories are novels in brief. All the skills you need to create satisfying novel-length books are required in short fiction.

Actually, those skills are almost more important to bring to bear in short stories because you don't have the luxury of hundreds of pages to make your impact.

Every scene in your novel is actually a short story.

Take a look at the opening of Operation: FirebrandCrusade as an example of a chapter as standalone short fiction.
