The experimental fantasy story
is in the fantastic February issue of Blue Fifth Review!
I feel humble to have a story in the same issue as Robert Vaughn’s evocative flash Turkey Town and Changming Yuan’s sublime poem Fate Forecast. Go read them!
Thank you so much to editors Sam Rasnake and Michelle Elvy for rambling with me.
“He goes to the standing stones by the sea, under the burnished, fever-yellow sky and clouds like black chimney smoke. The elongated granite shapes pierce the ground like crooked teeth in pale gums and are fondled by crusty, gray lichen. The sea hates the stones and rages blue-green against their cliff, while it foams at the mouth and froths on the waves. The hiss and rumble from the ocean and the shivering of the promontory is a constant song in his ears.”

Girlfriend, you be having some weird dreams 😉 That was quite a piece, incredibly vivid. Beautifully written, as always. I like this bit right in the beginning, “The elongated granite shapes pierce the ground like crooked teeth in pale gums and are fondled by crusty, gray lichen.”
Glad to hear you liked it. 🙂
Yeah, while we’re talking about dentists and teeth. 🙂 I did file on every single word in that story. But all labor of love. 🙂
Wonderful writing, Berit. Pleased to have your work in Blue Fifth Review.
Very happy and honored to be there. 🙂
Thank you again for taking the story in!
