Literary Corner: The Collector

“Beautiful, isn’t it?” Carla sidled left, allowing the tweed jacket behind her to move closer to the Strad. “The Spanish Court,” Carla said. “One of only thirteen Stradivarius violas left in the world.” “Are you a collector?” “Unfortunately, no,” Carla answered. Then she noticed the man’s picture next to the plaque that named the viola. […]

“I’d like a triple grande mocha Frappuccino with extra whip, please,” said the girl wearing track pants and a fitted t-shirt with the words “No Probllama” stamped over a picture of a llama with sunglasses. “I like your shirt,” said the barista as he typed in her order. “Thanks,” she said, smiling brightly at him.

Literary Corner: The Lighthouse

The lighthouse stood empty on its rocky promontory, looking sightless out over the sea. It had been decades since its beacon had warned sailors of the basalt monsters that crouched beneath the waves along foggy shorelines, waiting for inattentive helmsmen to deliver their pound of flesh. Most of the coastal lighthouses no longer operated, but […]

Literary Corner Flash Fiction: No Trespassing

“Come on, Amber,” Charlie said. “The sign is barely there. If they really wanted to scare us off, they’d have put up an electric fence or razor wire or something.” Amber peered into the brushy undergrowth, but the trees obscured her view. There was a track that led off into the gloom, like Charlie had […]

Literary Corner: Swipe Right

He should have known better than to swipe right. He had known better, in fact. The entire time he’d been composing a witty introduction, he’d thought to himself, this is a bad idea, Todd. The post had sounded too good to be true, and so, of course, it was. But it hadn’t had the usual […]

Literary Corner: Long Winter Nap

Blue and red lights illuminated the underbellies of snow-filled clouds. Fat flakes streaked from sky to pavement, lining Clyde’s ears and nose with cold and wet. He sneezed grouchily from his hiding place beneath the hedge. People rushed in and out of the blue house. He was pleased he’d managed to escape before they’d arrived, […]

“It ain’t the worst job in the world,” he said, pulling his T-bar from his hip bucket and swiping at the window. “Decent hours, decent pay. And you never know what you’re gonna see.” He chuckled and swapped his T-bar for a squeegee. The cage dangled three stories above the ground. He’d been at it […]

Literary Corner: More at 11

The thing that people get wrong about fire is that they assume it destroys everything in its path. This is true at first, but it’s only half the story. The fire isn’t the problem, or even the symptom of the problem. It’s the revealer of the problem. The problem was always there, you see. The […]

Graham Stratton fumed over the statement he’d just received in the mail. CFO of a Fortune 500 company and he’d fallen for the oldest trick in the book. Forty-five thousand dollars he’d invested using the Hoodwin app. It had promised a quick return, free stock trading, the convenience of a slick interface on all mobile […]

Literary Corner: Lost Son

Sarah Ausman clutched the photo of her son, careful in her grief not to let tears fall on the faded image. He’d been ten when the photo was taken. She’d spent far more money than it was worth on the baseball jersey, the overpriced team photos, the matching mug, but she’d wanted him to have […]
