Rockets (Flash Fiction) To Be Published by WeirdYear

Sunday, 18 July 2010

 A flash fiction story of mine called Rockets has just been accepted by WeirdYear and will be appearing there in mid-August. This was one of the stories I wrote for Story A Day in May, so it's great to see it out there already.

The story is kind of speculative/SF, but also kind of magic realist. Depending on how you read it. Here's an excerpt :

He knew he wouldn’t have to go up very far. The edge of space was only fifty miles away. It was further than that to London and he went there often. All he needed was enough power. Enough thrust.

I'll let you know when it's out there ...


  1. You constantly AMAZE me with your microfiction!! This is a blast!!! Literally and figuratively! Wonderful and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

    I hope one day you'll gather all these fab stories in one published place..! They really are very good!!!:-)

    Take care

  2. That tally of publications is looking very impressive.

  3. Old Kitty,

    Thanks - you really do say the kindest things!

    The bit of the story in the post is just an excerpt : the complete story is rather longer. I hope you enjoy that as much!

  4. Donna,

  6. You are a master of the short form. I'm impressed.

    Thanks for the comments on my blog. I just checked out your Kindle offerings on Amazon, and I love the covers. Did you design them yourself, or pay a pro?

I'd love to know what you think.
