The Million Eyes short stories are standalone short stories set in the same world as the Million Eyes Trilogy.
The stories provide glimpses of the conspiracy that is at the heart of the trilogy. Many of the events in the stories are based on real-life conspiracy theories, mysteries and urban legends. Several of the stories are set in different time periods.
At the moment, I have eleven Million Eyes short stories completed, with others planned. The eleven completed stories are being submitted to magazines and competitions as we speak.
