.Many links go to online readable versions of the stories. Some (marked Amazon, or other print), are print only – the link is to the Amazon page or the magazine’s website. No links for stories that are out of print. I try to keep up with the shifting web – if you find any broken links, I’m happy to hear from you.

(This was a research degree with a thesis in two parts: a creative section and a critical essay. My creative section, “Hunter”, was a 35,000 word novella following a New Zealand family on trip to Florida. The 15,000 word critical essay, “Hunting for a Voice” examined the influence of three writers; John Irving, Richard Ford and Raymond Carver, on my writing in general and on the novella in particular). The Fryer Library catalogue record is here.
