New Story Online!

This one turned around so fast it caught me by surprise–my science fiction flash story, “The Transfer,” is featured today at Every Day Fiction.

“Today’s the day?” Travis stood as still as he could while the technicians checked his heart rate and blood pressure, but he was shivering with excitement.

“Yes, Travis. No more drills. Lethe is in proper alignment with Earth, so we can complete the transfer. You’ll have three hours to gather as much information as you can before we bring you back. We’re especially interested in the forest this time.”

I love flash fiction–it’s a special kind of challenge creating a complete story in 1000 words or less. If done correctly, it can carry a huge emotional impact. It’s the literary equivalent of a sniper rifle.

Anyhow, check it out, and please vote and comment if you have the time.
