Hello everybody,

I’m calling myself A.J. Moon and this project of mine Gasto. The best fiction confronts political models of humanity with counterfacts, and the potential contemporary readership is not to be underestimated. Gasto is an attempt to establish an online presence, to get my short stories out to the people who might like them, to open channels of dialogue with my readers and other contemporary writers.

Signals

“To London now and it’s currently twelve degrees and cloudy over all parts of the city. Expect a high of sixteen this afternoon and cloud cover for the rest of the day, clearing this evening.

Slice was a renegade, more than once losing a customer over … » Read “Slice”

Architecture

It’d been two months since Jimmy’s last hook-up. He’d met her on the dance floor at the Curtin Hotel and they’d gone home together to share a little skin. His friend Sarah had warned him not to get attached, but he had. Then she’d given him some real bad advice. “If you’re gonna chase this … » Read “Architecture”

At the other end sat two mothers with their pale daughters sitting walleyed, saying nothing, watching them yap at each other through their front … » Read “What I’ve been doing”

Conditions for Life

The coins you handle touch and part in your searching fingers. One more bottle of wine. You look up at your friend the Scientist and a couple of coins ease their way out of the wallet and into space, falling, hitting the floorboards with a clatter.
