Steve Dean's Short Story Earth's Finest

Earth’s Finest

Graham Langdon was nervous for the first time in years. He was head of PR at a very prestigious technology company, had many years of experience and was good at his job. He’d met kings and queens, presidents and prime ministers, and once, an emperor. But he’d never met an alien.

Steve Dean's Short Story Genetic Programming

Genetic Programming

The common link here, and some would say the weakest, is the human being at the centre of it all. At this point my mind, as it often does, dropped into the gutter and I began thinking about all that genetic baggage we humans have to drag around with us.

Steve Dean's Short Story The Joys of Dating in the Twenty Second Century

The Joys of Dating in the Twenty-Second Century

I was about halfway through another story, when I noticed my neighbour’s cat that likes to sleep in one corner of my shed roof. You might think these two events are unrelated, but to a writer, there’s no such thing. So, story in progress, cat on roof, a glazed look and a slight smell of burning and k-ching! Another story. I hope you like it.

Steve Dean's Story Mr Wood Visits The Lady Garden, Adult, Erotica

Mr Wood Visits The Lady Garden

‘Lady Garden’ is a euphemism and sounds like a a children’s TV programme. Combined with the British passion for double entendre and innuendo, it led to me writing this story. To get the most out of the story, imagine you’re reading it like one of those constantly happy and patronising children’s presenters.

Steve Dean's Sci-Fi Short Story Alien Interaction

Alien Interaction

Astronomers have been finding exoplanets out there. Planets may mean life, although this doesn’t necessarily mean intelligent life. The question is not why we haven’t found them yet. It’s more like how they will react when they do turn up. Will they steal our water and make us into burgers, or will they bring immortality and reliable Wi-Fi?
