Howard Faxon: Stories

These are written for fun from a standing start--no pre-planning. I work without a net (read editor, there) so beware. (The few stories that have been edited state that.) I have read some marvelous things on this site, and believe in repaying that by trying t write things that others might enjoy. I hope these strike a chord somewhere.
