Stuffed Animals
A Collection of Microfiction
by Wayne Johnston

Stuffed Animals is a collection of haunting, sparsely wrought micro fiction. Each story invites the reader in and then delights and torments them with surprises and plot twists. Whether you are in the mood for black humour, spine-tingling horror, or soul-wrenching tragedy, you will find it within these pages. While the stories explore a wide range of themes and genres, they share an interest in word play and conceptual games. With complex imagination, compelling characters, and gripping storylines, Stuffed Animals asks the reader to sit down, dig in, and not let go. It captures an unsettling balance of beauty and repulsion, the writing versing more as artistic expression than conventional storytelling.

Wayne Johnston is a writer, painter, and librarian. He has published two books: At the York (Ergo, 1990) and Ten Cities: The Past Is Present (Friesen Press, 2019). His short story “Loney” won third place in the Eden Mills Writers’ Festival (2020). Both Wayne’s paintings and his stories explore a wide range of themes. Wayne lives in Guelph, Ontario, with his wife Jane.
