Beginning

Welcome! This website features fiction by Z.K. Leverton, a Toronto-based writer of fantasy, horror and experimental fiction. I hope you’ll visit often and share freely.

Our first act as human beings, all the way back in primordial genesis, was to recognize the other and try to connect with them. The first way in which our huge, complex brains thought to do this, was to tell a story. We are story creatures. Stories are the constant and foundational element in any culture in any part of our history. We tell stories to explain how to conquer our environments, how to explain where we came from, and to wonder what comes next.

i hope you enjoy my stories. they all mean something to me, and i hope they’ll mean something to you.
