Short Stories, Rants and Observations

Alan Crawford is my name and I’m responsible for these rather odd short stories, rants, lists and observations. A number of inquisitive people, namely one, asked me how or where do the ideas come from. Thankfully there’s no clear answer. When the trousers, mind or wild weather conditions suit such things, the computer opens, a page appears and so it starts to flow.

Now while each short story may reside in unpleasant situations, each of the tasty morsels including the rants, lists and observations are aimed at a mature audience. Sadly they may appear to be rather immature at times.

Some of the writings are based on reasonably true events, the rest emerge from a ludicrous imagination and not from a serial killer. Only I know which is which. The menu above offers links to this nonsense.

I’ll try my best to finish the stories I’ve left in limbo and against all sensible advice and recent criticism, I now have time to write more. The joy in doing so, far outweighs the ambivalence shown by my keen yet limited audience. I need to share my work and grab those eyes so desperately measured by the system.

Yes, I’m now retired from the hum drum of working full time, so the updating and massaging of content will continue with an obsessive frenzy worthy of diagnosis. While there are dangers in doing so, I’m opening up posts to comments. Feel free to provide any feedback you’d like to share. about me offers a reasonably believable explanation and you can track me down lurking on socials as @acrawfordsaid and
