The Beard and Other Weirdness
by Steve Dillon

The Beard began life as a short story, then like the beard in the title, it grew until it started to look like a novel. As I don’t really have the time to devote to completing a novel form, I trimmed its bushiness somewhat and now it is a long short story. 


The Weirdness of Bliss, another long story/novella in this collection, is a series of vignettes which originally formed part of The Beard when it was aspiring to become a novel. The events and characters were all to meet or interplay at some point, and their stories were to be referenced within the content of The Beard. But this is as far as I’ll take it now, there won’t be a novel as such. 


Onto Circus Runner, which was also earmarked for a novel. I must thank Kaaron Warren here for her mentorship and advice as I struggled to make it grow into something far bigger than I could handle, however, I won’t be developing this one any further. 


Little Bastard has only ever been published in digital format until now. If you have a passion for rock ‘n’ roll legends and their cars you’ll enjoy it.


The remaining short stories mostly represent work I’ve had published elsewhere, or which I’ve written for various submission callouts.


Finally, I’ve included a selection of poems I hope you’ll enjoy, from the frivolous to the deadly serious in nature. Again, some of these have been published elsewhere, or were inspired by callouts for competitions. Some were written just to get the words from my head.
