I cannot believe that I did not post about this story!
This story came from my time living in a circus in San Diego. You read that correctly, though calling the TechnoMania Circus a ‘circus’ is perhaps not utterly correct. Based in a former and historical church building, this performance art group featured many of the acts I mention in the story and that title is from a quote painted on the walls. Springer the dog is as true as I can manage in a work of fiction.
This story will be available to read for free on The Colored Lens’ website in May 2016.
James Gunn’s AD ASTRA has kindly decided to publish my extremely short piece of flash, A Superlative For Goodbye, in their Spring 2016 issue.
This is a second-person narration about being an astronaut. And decisions made, ah yes, by space agencies, governments, public opinion, and the astronaut herself.
I’ll post again when it’s published.
