Operation Concrete


Short stories in 500 words or less deriving from the Outrun, tech-noir and NewWave aesthetic. For years now I've been listening to Soundcloud daily at work, learning and loving every day more and more the artists of the NewRetroWave and Synthwave music movement. From the big guns like Dynatron and Kavinsky to all the other hundreds of bedroom warriors, they create the perfect 80's aesthetic that I enjoy so much. So, I thought, why not write the  sort of 80's movie influenced stories I've always wanted to write? And the product of that is Outrun Stories, each story has quite a typical trope, usually a bad deal gone wrong, love for the wrong woman, a fight about to turn south, that sort of thing, and a Sythnwave soundtrack to accompany it. Some of my favourites so far are:


OUTRUN STORIES #7: Double Brutal

OUTRUN STORIES #16: The plan is: There is no plan.
