Harry Hunter’s Miscellany

Welcome to the website of Harry Hunter, author of Christian fiction.

Here you will find a selection of Harry’s poems, acrostics and flash fiction.

**Update – now that my new book has been published, I’ve finally found time to start writing for the website again. A new acrostic (Gifts of the Spirit) and poem (Mary, Mary) have been added. **

Any of the material under the Flash Fiction, Poems, Acrostics, and Half Hour Bible tabs may be freely used in church magazines and similar miscellanies, provided that authorship is acknowledged. I don’t mind if you change pieces slightly to meet editorial requirements (please see the note at the foot of this page).

Harry’s new book – ‘Orrible ‘Oooligans – is now available from feedaread as well as Amazon and other major outlets.


And here’s a new acrostic – Remembrance – written for Remembrance Sunday:

Recall, O Israel, your deliverance
Escaping Pharaoh’s army, brought safe to shore;
Moses’ song of triumph, Miriam’s victory dance.
Each day a fiery pillar going before
Multitudes crossing Sinai’s dry expanse,
Building a people of power united by perfect law.
Remember’ cries the psalmist, ‘and cast a sidelong glance
At how God has saved us in times of peace and war’.
Nations delivered from direst circumstance,
Captive souls plucked from Sheol’s maw,
El Shaddai, God of justice, God of the second chance.


If you would like to suggest topics for future poems or fiction I will do my best to respond.
