I am truly honored today to see my colleagues over at The Bees Are Dead feature a new short story of mine. Its title is “Shine Now, Fiercely, Forever,” and it might be the darkest thing I’ve ever written. It portrays a married couple constructing the world’s first functioning time machine — and then discovering what are possibly the worst possible consequences of such a device malfunctioning.
Thanks so much to Philippe Atherton-Blenkiron for allowing me to share via The Bees Are Dead, his online magazine for dystopian prose and poetry! I am grateful indeed for the opportunity he’s afforded me.
“Shine Now, Fiercely, Forever” can be found right here:
Hey, gang — my colleagues and I over at The Bees Are Dead are just thrilled with the submissions we’ve been receiving after the launch of our transatlantic webzine! As you might know from my blog right here, we’ve been honored to launch the site with a powerful poem by Scott Thomas Outlar. And Eddie Skelson’s “Fort Hope” was a wickedly clever post-apocalyptic zombie story.
Again, we’re interested in your very darkest visions of worlds gone bad — the editorial focus of The Bees Are Dead is dystopian and post-apocalyptic prose, poetry, art, photography and reviews. Our submission guidelines are actually fairly flexible; click here and take a look:
