Stories, Poetry, and most everything else by Monocle | Raziel Moore

Summer 2016 project: In the coming weeks I’ll be going through and reposting older stories on this site that were removed for publications that are no longer in print. There may or may not be new work coming, but at least some of the dead-end links here will change.

Newest stories at the top of each section. Newest since last update of this page are marked by ***.  Some of my stories have been taken down as they are now in published form. Teasers for all of those remain on the blog, so you can determine if those stories might be to your liking. For information about the Obsidian Lens stories, check the dedicated page tab, or this link.-M
