These short stories are here for you to enjoy, free! I hope they entertain, amuse you and perhaps offer a bit of escapism from the rigours of the modern world. Sit back, relax and become immersed in the weird and wonderful world of Goatboy and his Satyr Tales!
These gems are designed for anyone who needs a bit of silliness and surrealness in their daily lives. While intended for young adults upwards parental guidance is highly advised, even if you are well in to your thirties. Within these pages roam rogue satirical works, thought provoking patter, uplifting morals, gag inducing japes, reckless word frivolity and mind numbing escapades. Satyr Tales are hereby published for the convenience of everybody and anybody who doesn’t mind large doses of insanity and the occasional sweary word.
So, what do you know? Your literary tastes will be satisfied if you are lucky enough to be a lover of Python, South Park, Roehl Dahl, Terry Pratchett, Simon Pegg, Kevin Smith, Fry & Laurie, Richard Curtis, Terry Gilliam, Spike Milligan etc. All very surreal, satirical and very, very silly stuff.
This site is also a shout out to other writers fretting about getting their stuff out there. It can be done if you believe in yourself! And of course if you have a WordPress site…so, y’know…GET ON WITH IT!!!

This is the place to showcase my best work; short fiction, fan fiction, scripts etc. Think of it as my online portfolio. All pieces posted/ submitted have been proof read several times by several earnest and qualified folks; however it would help me immensely to receive constructive criticism and helpful words of encouragement from subscribers. You never know, it may even attract a publisher-which is my primary goal here. Furthermore, to improve my skills and practice, I will always appreciate feedback both positive and negative – AS LONG AS IT’S CONSTRUCTIVE!!! If you hate it, go right ahead and hate it, just explain why! Now get subscribing, reading and commenting!
I intend to publish at least one piece every month, real life permitting; and preferably with some accompanying concept art work by either myself or some other creative type I’ve wrangled, cajoled and generally harassed into working for me. I will redraft/ update/ edit/ amend existing entries after feedback.
Moreover, throughout my literary quest of enlightenment I have been lucky enough to befriend many other similarly minded artists of varying mediums and hope to feature links and shout-outs to their awesome works too, watch this space!
If you want my humble opinion on any of your creative writings please let me know! I am in no way a mentor or expert in these matters but I can give you my honest thoughts and ramblings on your work.
