From eerie horror to human tragedy, from biting science fiction to unearthly fantasy, from realistic human drama to quirky surrealism, there seems to be no short story to which Steve Carr cannot turn his hand - gripping his readers all the way.
Steve Carr grew up fatherless and poor in Cincinnati, Ohio, but his mother and teachers encouraged him to write, so he did, honing his craft for many years. During that time he spent three years in the Army, four years in the Navy, went to college, worked, traveled, and read. Most importantly he met thousands of people, and observed the minutiae of even the smallest details of the world around him. He wrote plays that were produced in several states and then in June, 2016, he submitted a short story to an ezine after not writing and submitting a story to a publication for many years. It was quickly accepted. Since then, his stories that cover a half dozen genres and a wide range of themes, have been published in over 200 publications, including anthologies, magazines, literary journals and ezines. Heat, published by Czykmate Productions, is his second published collection of short stories. His first collection of short stories, Sand, was published by Clarendon House Publications in February of 2018.
