Someone who I know reads this blog (which narrows it down to a very exclusive club) told me recently that they didn’t read much short fiction because it wasn’t obvious where to find it. I’ve read a lot more short stories recently, but it can certainly be hard to know where to look. So here are four, available for free, which I thought were excellent.
Observations About Eggs… – bizarre, fascinating, and vividly recalls a few conversations I’ve had that veered suddenly into strange territory.
When it Ends, He Catches Her – zombie apocalypse with added ballet.
The Meeker and the All-Seeing Eye – post-post-post apocalyptic.
Jackalope Wives – shapeshifters in the SouthWest (USA, not Cornwall, though that could be fun too).
