A Few Short Stories

You will find other kinds of writing on this blog as well—journalism, commentary, and creative non-fiction pieces mostly about travel and academia.  But this is a sample of original pieces of fiction by me that you can read here for free.  All my short stories are catalogued in my “Complete List of Publications”.
