Your Favourites: a free short story collection by Leanne Dyck


photo by ldyck

From 2010 to 2020, I've shared short fiction on this blog. Recently I hunted down the stories (for this collection I defined 'story' as works of fiction) that received the most page views to create this collection. They're short and diverse--from horror to humour. It's interesting to see how my writing has improved and changed over the years. I hope you enjoy reading Your Favourites...
