Paul’s Writing

Classics ReMixed Vol. II - with short stories by Paul K. MetheneyOne of the many things I do to still the voices in my head (technically, the voices are in Melinda’s head, but as long as SOMEBODY shuts up, it’s a good day!) is to write fiction. I have written about 20 short stories and am working on a much anticipated novel (anticipated by me). There is also a collaboration of  sci-fi stories coming out this spring with Steve Rouse. My own private supernatural/fantasy collection should be coming out this summer. Somewhere along that way is a collection of stories about a southern sheriff, his family, and his town. You can see some of my currently published short stories published by Left Hand Publishers here:

  • Beautiful Lies, Painful Truths Vol. I – I have two short stories in that. One called “The Fall,” in which a man stands on the edge of suicide and questions God’s power. In an actual conversation.  “The Bet” features two immortal entities wagering on the same man’s life or death.
  • Beautiful Lies, Painful Truths Vol. II – In BLPT II, I have two stories I compressed into a single one with two parts. In “The Truth in the Dark,” we follow a serial killer. The second part, “What Lies in the Dark,” is a supernatural thriller of the detectives investigating those killings.
  • Classics ReMixed Vol. I – is an anthology of stories that spins well-known tales. I have written a disturbing twist to the Rapunzel story. Melinda still won’t talk about it.
  • Classics ReMixed Vol. II – is the sequel to Classics ReMixed Vol. I. I have two short stories in this. “The Dark Knightmare” eviscerates the superhero origin story. “Upon A Star” retells the Pinocchio story in 1940’s New York and even includes gender-bending time travel. Who says I’m not versatile?
