Hey how about getting
                      a whole collection of Steve's Short stories in one
                      go
Steve's SciFi Shorts - Volume 1

This first collection of Steve's Short Stories brings a mixture of the darker side of Science and what man is probably capable of achieving, whilst also bringing some humour.  These short stories have allowed Steve the luxury to make a  study of a particular topic that has reared its head in the world of science or technology and is currently being discussed.  Steve through use of his imagination and word processor, has explored where such developments could take human kind.  There is even a story that could be a ghost story, or is it about a ghost?  To round things off Steve even glimses into the domain of romance.  Something for everyone?  Maybe, we'll leave it for you to decide.

In addition to the stories, Steve also brings you, courtesy of the talented artists concerned, some great music tracks that act as the theme music for each story.  Each track has been carefully chosen to match the subject matter and tone of the story concerned.

This audiobook, 6 hours of entertainment, two years in the making, is supplied FREE of charge. 

For those who would prefer to read the stories for themselves, please see the links below to Smashwords.com or bookmato.com, where the eBook versions can be found.

Please respect all the hard work that goes into making these audio stories, don't alter them and don't sell it, but you CAN copy it and GIVE it to others as long as you don't alter the file and tell them where it came from.

When someone comes out with one of those well known sayings, do you just take them for granted?  Or does it make you wonder what lies behind them?  This was one of those times when my mind raced  and came up with this short story.  I gotta admit however, that it is one of those sayings that I never really understood, prehaps that's a good thing or I may have never come up with this story.

03 - Angel Without A Name
(18.4 MB)
(35 Mins)

This is one of those stories that emerged from a random conversation with a shop keeper, a phrase came out in the conversation to the effect of "Boy Without A Name" and that got my mind working on this story.  It is one of those stories where everything isn't quite as it first seems.  I'll say no more otherwise I'll give too much away. Enjoy and don't forget to give me some feedback.
