These stories will intrigue anyone who loves short fiction with a twist. They can be read as a blog or downloaded in PDF, EPUB, and MP3 (Audio) versions.

It is preferable to print or use a laptop or a tablet on the PDF files as the screens of most eReaders are too small for the PDF format.

EPUB files are recommended for small screens such as a smartphone or an eBook readers. They provide a better reading experience on a tablet or computer than PDF. This freely available e-book standard supports more hardware e-book readers than any other file format. For eReaders that are not compatible with EPUB, such as Kindle, see here.

The MP3 files are audio and can be loaded onto your MP3 player through your media player.
