Free Short Stories

These shorts I've written and posted on my web page. They contain some profanity and inappropriate subject matter, however, are not pornographic. Please feel free to download them and read at will, they are licensed under a liberal Creative Commons license and are free to read and distribute non-commercially. Here are free PDF versions:

"The Proxies" Approx 12000 words

http://daduh.org/printpdf/1

"$170.42" Approx 2000 words

http://daduh.org/printpdf/98

"The Occupation" Approx 1500 words

http://daduh.org/printpdf/97

Hope some out here enjoy the work.

I have yet to read your stories, but anything that's inappropriate and makes people uncomfortable and itchy has my attention. If I want a touchy-feely story, then I'll read a romance - but I'll probably puke up some green slime. If I want decapitation, then give me a zombie with unheard of sexual urges.

You might think about another format, as PDF is pretty much despised because of its inappropriateness as an ebook reading format. Take a look at mobi/prc. or lrf (Sony); or RTF (Word) or doc.

You might also think about posting this in the Freebies Forum, where more people will see it.

Yes. That is a good idea. I'm new to the ereader scene and simply didn't know. But I'm pretty sure I could convert to a mobile format with a bit of work.
