Even as a young child, Ando loved telling stories. He was recognized in school for his creative writing, and his parents encouraged this trait. As he grew older, the subject matter for his writing matured from best friends being sucked into a computer game to supernatural horror. Though some modern stories and movies have caused the supernatural horror genre to seem rote and tired, Ando has been drawn to it, hoping he might overcome the stigma of such elements as vampires, ghosts, and possession.
Available below are some of the horror fiction Ando has written.
- Shadows of a Dark Past (note: this is essentially a novel-length fanfiction set in the Dark Shadows universe. However, Ando attempted to write the story with consideration to those who have not seen the original show, and such knowledge is not required to appreciate the story.)
- At Cape Clear
- The S’Tlis
- Short Cuts- a collection of extremely short stories somewhere between vignettes and flash fiction
- Dead House (a longer, slightly more developed extension of the Short Cut “The House”)
