“This is a haunting story that deals with social class, friendship, and greed. It cuts in all the best ways.” – Vivian Hernandez, Goodreads

Awarded an Honorable Mention in the Writer’s Digest 89th Annual Writing Competition


Teenage best friends Aaron and Tim have their own hideout in the woods. It’s an old reclaimed cabin nicknamed the Fort. And it just grew a new door.


“The Fort” is a unique audiovisual book directed and produced by Alan Lastufka. “The Fort” short story was written and published by Alan Lastufka two months prior to the release of the audiovisual book.

The story is narrated by Nicholas Jenkins, with audio engineered by Christian Caldeira.

The song Tim is listening to towards the end is a previously unreleased 2005 recording by Alan’s band, The English Language. The song is called “This Autist’s Eyes” and was written by Lastufka and Robert Randolph. It was originally intended to be the b-side to their first single, “Roses and Overturned Ashtrays”.
