Three new stories published yesterday, 20th March.
Jamie Hittman’s ‘Movers of Possible Futures’. Here’s the link: http://bit.ly/2FPBLm9 A tiger prowls suburbia. This is not only beautifully written, but it’s a study in economic characterisation.
DC Diamondopolous’s ‘Billy Luck’. http://bit.ly/2FRwABO. At 85, after a lifetime with Gerling’s Carnival of Fun, Billy goes to visit his dying friend Daisy, a midget who’s ‘got religion’. Billy and Daisy share a secret, and after all these years he still can’t help but do her bidding. Billy’s Southern voice is confiding and authentic, and you’ll forget you’re not sitting in a saloon or a train car as you hear his tale.
Amanda Staples’s ‘One Moment’. http://bit.ly/2HQxnjh. ‘You never notice the numerous babies in every shop. On every street. On every TV advert. Everywhere. Until you can’t have one’. Never imagining she’d be desperate for a baby, a woman finds herself in a police station after a child is abducted.
Hope you enjoy them: don’t forget to rate and review them!
