This was the first short story I wrote, that I actually felt like I got what makes a short story work. It was the first time I had written one and thought that I would get it published. So in many ways, it was a very important piece of writing for me.
It was first published in A Foreign Country last year, and I was thrilled to find a second home for it with Comets and Criminals. It’s a quick read, but not necessarily an easy one. I hope that if you take the time to have a look, you enjoy it.
There is also a poem now available, The Museum of Incipient Flight, by Sharon Mock.
