Left alone for the day at the lake by their father, four children wander off on adventures which put each of them at risk.

In ‘The Lake Story’ by Ron Elliott, the narrator sifts through his and his adult siblings’ memories to fill the gaps of their life with their erratic, alcoholic father.

A moving story told with gritty realism and vivid imagery, reconstructed through storytelling, emails and unreliable memory.

Spineless Wonders is proud to offer this series of twelve beautifully-written digital long stories selected for us by award-winning Australian author, Michael McGirr.
