A flash fiction short story that I wrote back in January and started life as a submission for the Purbeck Literary Festival, has now found a home over at Twisted Sister Literature Magazine. It’s called, ‘Conservation of the Species’. You can read the opening below:
The sky explodes as the runner’s trainer splashes down into a puddle on the dirt track. The mud that he kicks up spatters his legs and joins the zig zag of red lines that bramble thorns have already etched into his shins. A low sun warms his back and casts a shadow at his feet. A silhouette that’s always one step ahead.
A big ‘thank you’ to Andrea and Twisted Sister for publishing this.
