A certain number (probably no more than about 15% of my work) of my stories are either parody or pastiche. Some of these stories find their way onto the internet. When they do, I'll post the relevant links to them here.
This has just appeared online:
It's an Edgar Allan Poe parody called Poe Pie. The impulse to write this came wholly from a story that appeared in the recent food based fiction anthology SCATTERED, COVERED, SMOTHERED. The story in question is The Strange Case of the Lovecraft Café by M.F. Korn, Des Lewis,
and Jeff VanderMeer.
My story is fundamentally different from this other story in terms of style, direction and effect, but it would not exist if I had not read it. Therefore I offer a bow to Messrs Korn, Lewis and VanderMeer -- the bow is contained in the way I craned my head over my desk while I wrote my story (it was handwritten).

And no pooh-poohing Poe Pie! 'Tis a fine, funny story, Rhys.

Here's another online story:
It's not a parody or pastiche of anything, though.
