I am C.E. Ayr, a pioneer of a new genre of short story writing.
I call it Sound Bite Fiction.

The stories on this site are short, sparse and to the point, and have all been written in my current home on the Cote d’Azur.
Many of the tales are based in and around the place I call Medville.
Mysterious and enigmatic, served with a splash of humour, nothing here is ever quite what it seems.

Expect the unexpected.
There is always a twist in the tail.
