Running Coyote and Fallen Star: and other stories by Gavin Boyter

Running Coyote and Fallen Star: and other stories by Gavin Boyter  “We’re trialing a neurological implant that links two consciousnesses together, allowing complete access to another person’s thoughts, feelings and emotions.” “I see. And you think this is a good idea?” (Ride Along)


“We’re trialing a neurological implant that links two consciousnesses together, allowing complete access to another person’s thoughts, feelings and emotions.”
“I see. And you think this is a good idea?” (Ride Along)

These 48 stories take you into the interior worlds of soldiers, artists, undercover agents, explorers, daredevils, spies, and interstellar smugglers.

A young pop singer and an operatic tenor duet over their balconies in lockdown London.
An uptight journalist comes face to face with an ancient ancestor in a cave in the Carpathians.
Mata Hari meets the love of her life aboard the Orient Express.
And in the title story, two women on the run from the FBI guard a unique infant.

Boyter’s pocket-sized tales encompass whole worlds, transporting you from the melting Greenland icecaps to New Orleans in the 1920s or the far depths of interstellar space. Meet Victorian ghosts, revenge-taking seamstresses, Vincent Van Gogh, and an obstreperous goat declared mayor of a small English village.
Many of these tales were generated by a unique process of random ideation. Their running theme is connection, and the new hope that comes from unexpected meetings of minds.


“Boyter’s work... is sensitive, ironic, and playful while maintaining a deeply serious edge that hits a fine-tuned target.” Nina Rubenstein Alonso, Editor, Constellations

“In his poignant tale of obsession, addiction, and despair, Boyter carries the reader through the challenges of a man battling temptations. “Keepsakes” is dotted with pedestrian objects like chipped record albums, stained coins, and old marbles, and is anchored by courage.” Kristen Henderson, Editor, Bright Flash Literary Review

“Boyter has a real gift for characterization. In amazingly few words, he’s able to build a world of quirky characters and settings, which the reader can’t but help be drawn into.” Katherine Emily, Co-Founder, Input/Output Enterprises
