Short Stories

Welcome to Chris Braak’s Short Story page!  Because I am great, and love all of humanity (except for Communists, naturally), I have made a concentrated effort to provide much of my short story work FOR FREE, here on the internet.  Most of these stories can be found at Threat Quality Press, except for the ones that I’m under contract not to reprint anywhere.
