Original Fiction by Luke Burrage

I write a lot. Some of what I write is fiction. I start many more fiction projects than I complete, but when I do finish a story that I'm happy to share, I share it here for free. So far I've only released science fiction stories, mainly because that's what I'm most familiar with, but I'm always trying other genres.
