ABOUT THIS SHORT STORY COLLECTION


Stories about the ones who don’t fit…

The Outsider Tales is a collection of five of Mark Gillespie’s early short stories about society’s black sheep - that is, the weirdos, the losers, and the indescribables who don’t fit in.

Featuring:

Snowballs From Mars (Winner of IdeasTap Short Story Competition) - During her first day at work, a young library assistant witnesses a shocking incident involving one of the regular members.

The Architect - On New Year’s Eve, a failed actor receives a mysterious phone call from a stranger with a familiar voice. But who is the man on the other end of the line? And what does he want?

Dark Lights - A body is laid to rest in the town of Seaview. But why are there no mourners?

Scratched Rolls Royce - A lonely woman rides the city bus at night, in search of cheap thrills with strangers.

The Rambler - Two soulmates cross paths after thirty years apart.

ABOUT MARK GILLESPIE


Mark Gillespie was born in Glasgow, Scotland. Nowadays he lives in Melbourne, Australia with his wife and small menagerie of four-legged creatures.

He writes Speculative Fiction - what if scenarios, alternate history, dystopian, apocalyptic, with a little pop culture thrown in on the side.

He is the author of the popular Future of London Series - a ‘masterfully written’ dystopian saga in which a futuristic London has been cut off from the rest of civilisation and has over the years, become a reality TV show for the rest of the world’s entertainment. 

He is also responsible for the FAB Trilogy - a series of alternate history-fantasy books that imagine a world in which John Lennon is alive and well. (“For sheer amazing imagination, FAB is hard to beat.”)
