Grand Theft Auto: The Untold Stories (2006 - 2011) was a fan-fiction series written by Zach Marsh. During its' short run, the series failed to become well-known amongst fan-fiction writers or Grand Theft Auto fans. The very small audience that had read the series had mixed to negative reactions - some loved the attempt to bridge the gap of the GTA games, while many saw Marsh's writing style and plot contradictions to be a turn-off.
The series itself had 4 episodes that started to bridge the gap between Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas when the series itself had suddenly come to a halt. After five years of a hiatus, Marsh finally pulled the plug on the series in 2011.
The series made an attempt to bridge every Grand Theft Auto game together, with Tommy Vercetti and Carl Johnson taking the roles of the primary protagonists. It took place in "real time", and each episode took the place of one hour. An entire season took place over one day. Marsh's series, however, was also going to chronicle the days of Johnson's parents, and that story was going to be told in a format similar to a regular story, fragmented and with gaps in-between. The story of Vercetti’s parents wasn’t going to be covered due to the fact that it wasn’t nearly as eventful.
Marsh may continue the series at some point in the future due to his personal enjoyment of it, but that is unlikely. If this does happen, the four episodes that were initially released will likely be re-written entirely while staying true to the plot.
