Short Stories by Rick Jankowski

Speculative and Sensitive Fiction

Hi, I'm Rick Jankowski. Welcome to my short story website!

I write general fiction, humorous fiction, and fiction with a touch of sci-fi or fantasy.  

My stories have been published in the US, Canada and Australia and have won several awards.  Storyteller Magazine nominated two of them, The Edifice andThe Deception, for Pushcart Prizes.

This site has samples of my stories.  Click on the links above and spend some time with my characters.

I've recently worked with a new artist, HenryEZ, who created this pic for my novel, The Games Thief. Check out the first two chapters!
