Mini Stories can be anything from a short story from inside the world of Cartharia to a stand alone piece of fiction that I wrote at 2am.  Do you have something you’d like to see posted on my site? Send me an email at me@spencermccoy.com and let’s plan on highlighting your story!

Dreams – Counterparts, Part I

Kiran Aldrich opened his eyes and looked around. The place he saw looked like home, but he knew it wasn’t. There wasn’t enough light. Everything was overcast, and shadows licked the buildings near where he stood. He took a hesitant step forward and then glanced down at his hands.

The Ring

I remember a bag being stuck over my head as I was led barefoot out of the building and into the ring. I had seen the ring before, of course. It was large and spacious and could sit thousands. There were at least that many there that day, all gathered together. All gathered for me. The bag was itchy. That...

The Child – Hero, Part II

“Perhaps,” Marcus said. She turned to Breanna, “Get me a horse.” “You can’t be thinking of going out there?” Marcus said. “Why not?” “It could be a trap,” Marcus said. “It could be,” Phaera said. “It matters little.

When the war had first started, this had been cause for a lot of sore attitudes, but the war was over, and the soldiers were glad to be...

The First of the Mermaids: Part III

While the rest of the Merdoc people and the visitors were enjoying trades and celebration, Leara and Mikael were enjoying each other. They spent all of their time on the beach, playing games in the turbulent waters and making love beneath the moonlight.  Sometimes, they would hold each other on the beach, talking for hours, and other times, Mikael would...
