Today we have a special treat: a guest post in my “Last Words” series!
Author, friend, Englishman, and fellow Writers of the Future volume 32 winner Matt Dovey sent this my way back in January with permission to publish it when I needed a weekend off. This is much appreciated this weekend, as not only was it my eldest child’s 6th birthday, but I have been in back/neck pain for most of the past week due to an unfortunate incident with a herd of transmogrified bovines, a feather duster, six gallons of dayglo purple ink, and one surprisingly small cucumber.
Uh. Where was I?
I was just about to present to you all…
Very English, what ho?
The first of the month just happened to mark Matt’s first fiction publication (Woohoo!) so if this tickled your Guernsey, then head on over to this month’s issue of Flash Fiction Online, where you can read “This is the Sound of the End of the World,” a lovely piece of space opera filled with lies, propaganda, and a heck of a chorus.
Also featured is Shannon Peavey’s “Millepora”, a tale of transformation and coral, as well as two other fine stories.
n.b. No Guernseys, cucumbers, or other living beings were tickled or otherwise maltreated in the making of this blog post.
