Tales for Dreamers

an image + a tale = plenty of whimsy and wonder

More than a decade ago, inspired by the writings of Neil Gaiman and Erin Morgenstern, especially her flax-golden tales, I began to write and share short fantasy fiction tales, each paired with an image.

These tales have proved to be an endless source of delight for many readers. There were a few hundred tales at last count, several not yet published, and I keep writing and adding more to the list.

Subscribers to the Monthly Missives newsletter receive a new tale every month.

All tales are archived here.

(At the moment, some of these tales are accessible only by paid subscribers and are marked by a star ⭐️, and all other tales can be read. I'm no longer offering paid subscriptions to new subscribers, and the current paid subscription offering will end in December 2023.)

You can read some of the popular tales right away without a subscription.

I promise I will only send you delightful dreams and wondrous whimsies. Impossible illusions and fleeting fantasies. Straight from The Dream Pedlar’s emporium into your mailbox! Occasionally, I may send you innocuous nightmares. All in good fun!
