  Further Writing by Swan Morrison

In November 2014, Swan Morrison published the third and final book of his Short Humour trilogy.

Details of the first book in the trilogy, A Man of Few Words, can be found on the Home Page of this site. Details of the second and third books, A Man of a Few More Words and A Man of Yet a Few More Words, can be found on the page titled A Man of a Few More Words. All the pieces in all of those three books can also be read on this site.

The title of the final book in the trilogy, A Man of Yet a Few More Words, can be taken as having more than one meaning. At one level it can simply represent another collection of Short Humour pieces. However, the title also reflects the increasing number of pieces that are beyond five hundred words.

Most of the stories Swan now writes are in excess of that figure, some greatly so. He has also completed a novel called Judgement Day and a novella called Deep Black further details of which can be found on the Home Page of this site. He also written parts of two other novels.

Five hundred word Short Humour stories by Swan Morrison will, therefore, become increasingly rare and hence any future anthology could not be legitimately described as Short Humour – it is doubtful if A Man of Yet a Few More Words can be.

The Short Humour Site will continue, however, primarily for pieces written by others.

This section of the site is a repository for whatever short pieces Swan now writes. These might be of any length and, although including humorous pieces, may also contain serious work. They will be grouped into categories when enough have been written.

For those of you who have reached this rather obscure corner of the Short Humour Site, Swan hopes that you enjoy the pieces below.

Some pieces by Swan Morrison cannot currently be publicly reprinted/republished due to agreements with other magazines in which they appear.

A password protected section of the site acts as a repository for those pieces so that the Short Humour Site can remain as a comprehensive library/reference of all humour written by Swan Morrison. Should you have the password, the link to that section of the site is here.
