About Marie Bellamont

My name’s Marie Bellamont and I created Jester’s Athenaeum. It’s an ongoing collection of short stories that can be read either individually or as a series. Some are black comedy, some are just silly parody-like humor, all are surreal fantasy. Updates are (to the extent that I’m able to deliver) posted every Sunday. The general rule is that if a title is some kind of carnival terminology, it means it’s black comedy. Most characters are recurring, though their stories don’t appear in chronological order.
I post these online so that they can be accessed for free, but accept donations from those who are willing and able to pay what they feel the stories are worth. I know that very few people are able to donate and that’s fine, but since donations make up a significant portion of the income I use to provide for myself and my soon-to-be infant son, they are very much appreciated from those who do have the means to contribute.

Jester’s Athenaeum has only been up since late April so it isn’t very well-known yet, but so far the vast majority of readers have had really good things to say about it. My hope is to get the word out so that more people will discover and hopefully enjoy the content, so if you know anyone who might enjoy this website please don’t hesitate to share the link to Jester's Athenaeum or to either of the following:

Please feel free to contact me about anything – I’d really love to hear from you.
