Creative Short Stories
Creative short stories and other inventive work is a big part of my life. I’ve written hundreds of illustrated short stories, including two books published on Kindle and featured here. There’s a bit of animation and music. In the future, I’m hoping to produce more stories, an illustrated fable book (inspired by Thurber’s classic, The Last Flower), a play, some more animation and perhaps a novel.
Enjoy my stories, video and music. Maybe even buy my book!
A collection of short stories that will disturb your thinking—in a good way. May cause dizziness, shortness of breath, laughter, crying or existential angst. Take only as directed.
Are you ready for anything? Because anything can happen in this angst-ridden, joyful, mysterious, mundane world of short, hard-hitting fiction. In this 2nd collection of illustrated micro-stories, Ray Katz continues to explore a strange universe that, at times, is uncomfortably similar to the one we live in. Whether it’s world-changing nobodies, philosophical street-people, or time traveling eccentrics, you’ll be visiting odd worlds and odder people than you’ve ever experienced.
