Vestigial Tales: Short stories in 140-odd characters

Huzzah! Vestigial Tales, my ebook of flash fiction, is here at last!

VTCover

Published by Legends, the fiction imprint of Ichabod Press, Tales is already up on Amazon (link) and will be appearing elsewhere shortly. Plus, there’s a paperback version in the works too.

A massive thank you to everyone who worked with me on this, especially Maria Astakhova, who produced several beautiful illustrations for the book.

Here’s the blurb from the publisher’s website:

“From the crew of a spaceship burning up upon re-entry to one woman’s sad musings over a lonely dead fish, quick-fire pick-up lines that don’t quite have the desired effect or crazed, murderous rants by an accountant pushed the edge, Vestigial Tales presents the reader with unforgettable characters and all manner of strange and fantastical worlds explored through 106 short stories each just 140 characters in length.

Inspired by the writings on his Twitter account, Liam Aidan’s distilled stories cast shadows of much larger worlds that don’t actually exist, the worlds the tales elude to but never fully describe, igniting the reader’s imagination in the process. From wry observational commentary to outright absurdity, Aidan switches between genres and styles ensuring Vestigial Tales contains something to delight everyone.

With original illustrations by Maria Astakhova, and a first line index of all the stories included at the back, Vestigial Tales is a must-have for all fans of flash and micro fiction.”

I’ll post more links as they become available, along with more assorted ramblings, of course.

Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter, unless “forgetting” is your way of politely declining. In which case, carry on.
