AUTOBIOGRAPHY: With deadlines looming and pressure mounting, @GenreStories decided that now would be a fantastic time to start up again.
URBAN VIKING: Sven Svenson had an axe to grind with Olaf the axe-grinder, who didn't grind Sven's axe when Sven axed him to.
HISTORICAL: The young president-to-be declared "I cannot tell a lie," which was the first of many.
SCI FI: The Internet collapsed. With no other outlet, gangs roamed the city, cornering strangers and assaulting them with opinions on Dr Who.
CLASSICS: Zeus fathered the Muses, source of all inspiration - Coffia, Deadlineus, Guiltia, and BrokenWiFia.
CLASSICS: Nation after nation submitted, until Thermopylae. The Empire Of The Mouse never recovered from the fiasco of Disneyland Sparta.
REBOOT: "Brutally murdered by the mob. Rebuilt as a machine to uphold the law. Part man. Part machine. All inspector. Gadget."
SLICE OF LIFE: "Sideways breasts, eight, a couple not sexually gratifying each other, ninty-six..." it was Doug's last day calling bingo.
AFFIRMATION: There is no "I" in "dyslexia".
FOLKTALE: By the 850th night, Scheherazade was padding things with dream sequences, on-again-off-again love plots and endless guest stars.
Genre Stories (@genrestories) is an ongoing Twitter account where I post twitter-length short stories in every genre I can think of.
This blog collects them into easy-to-read batches.
