Below are a list of the short stories I've posted on the blog for "easy access". Please forgive the dodgy artwork :)
This is a horror story set in the New Eden universe. PEGI-12 it is not!
I had a pair of faction frigates come after my Thrasher. It was not the fit they were expecting. This short story tells the engagement from a couple of techs on the ship that didn't come in for the tackle.
Stuck inside for a whole weekend as a sandstorm battered the villa, me and the wife watched some trashy sci-fi movies including Barb Wire! The introduction storyline got me thinking about a level four mission I used to run many years ago as a carebear. This story is a spin on the classic carebear's favourite. Adult theme.
This is basically the Eve movie I would make if I was a billionaire. A privateer is landing planetside for the conclusion of a shady courier deal. What he doesn't know is the delivery is for a secret Caldari bio-weapons research program hidden in plain sight in the city. When an unpresidented plasma storm hits, all hell breaks loose. Teaming up with an attractive secretary he rescues, they must run and keep ahead of the beautiful but deadly assassin that has been sent to silence them.

A post, an in-game convo, a discussion about DUST514 boarding parties and then this. Thanks for SeaElder4 for suggesting this as a piece.
This was a piece I wrote given that the P&P fiction contest rules said you couldn't feature Tibus Heth and a goat. Wanna bet?
This was an entry for the Pod and Planet fiction contest. After a very close battle an capsuleer crew member decides to quit. Unfortunately the enemy militia has already marked her as a target.
The Vengeance Series
A capsuleer suffers from horrific dreams from a past tragedy and seeks vengeance. A top member of the Guristas pirate organisation is trying to find out why they are being targeted. A pirate captain has been captured and imprisoned. All from one event in the past.
When the crew of a small mining frigate find their ship disabled by a rouge asteroid, power issues are the least of their worries.
The Jita Ripper Series.
This is a series of stories that follow on from "It's a Trap" below. This is my part of a joint effort of a number of very talented people from the Eve community that will take this story to it's conclusion - a live event in game offering fame, fortune and phat lootz!

A look at the morality of Capsuleers, especially those fighting in the war.
It's A Trap
A woman is looking to snag herself a capsuleer. But has the gold-digger finally gotten her prize, or is there more to him than meets the eye.
Follow a POS bash where we destroyed a large tower, I wrote this from the perspective of the tower's crew. We had a large BS fleet and the defence fleet kept trying to stop us and it was a most entertaining POS bash..... seriously!
Minmatar Aren't the Only Slaves
A short story on how my character knows my new Archon class carrier alt character. Set just before and just after my main character became a Capsuleer it tells of a rather nasty Amarrian Ambassador, slaves, but not the kind you usually think of in the galaxy of New Eden.
I killed 70 crew members the other day, simply because I was bored! This short piece looks at what happened inside the ship as I got my arse handed to me.
New Blood, Old Corpses
Capsuleers are not nice people. We're mostly mass murders if anything. But in the new "Wild West" of New Eden are we any worse than others? A short story about blackmarket clone material.
Drackarn's Story Part 2 - Sleeping with the Enemy
Actually, thinking about the end of part 1, the Caldari Mega-Corp Executive might not have a massive problem with Drackarn fighting for the Gallente Militia, but what would Tibus Heth have to say about it? He seems a guy with anger management issues! But even by order of Heth, how do you kill a capsuleer. Well you need a good trap..... and even better bait!
I play a Caldari character.... fighting the Caldari State. This piece looks how Drackarn became a Homer Simpson-esq cog in the Caldari State to a capsuleer fighting against them.
One of the hanger crew has to assess what's left of a Hurricane battlecruiser and report the bill to the capsuleer. But can he just send a simple message when he has seen the loss of life inside?
Crucible - Dust Off
The manufacturers of the hybrid weapons ships are rolling out a major update. Suddenly every Capsuleer wants their blaster and railgun ships out from deep storage. It's up to the hanger crew to sort this.
A Caldari Militia Capsuleer is having a drink in the State Protectorate station at Nisuwa VII when he gets some rather bad news.
This piece was my first I uploaded, but not the first I wrote to be uploaded. The one below, The Gamble, was the first one but I wasn't sure I conveyed the main characters will to get out of capsuleer crewing. So I wrote this and uploaded it first to try and explain what a crap life the crew on our ships really have! In the end it turned into a three-part piece along with The Gamble and The Salvager.
An engineer on a capsuleer battlecruiser gambles everything during shore-leave so he doesn't have to go back to that death trap.
Hopefully you've read the one above as the description of this one gives the game away - He won the gamble and set's himself up as a salvager.
Anything Eelis Can do.....
Eeils did a little fan-fiction piece about leaving Faction War and moving to 0.0 when we went to join RAGE. She posted it on Where the Frack is My Ship and you can read it here. I got a mention so I did my version!
