My latest flash piece, “Monologues” is live over at Every Day Fiction. You should check it out! Let them know what you think. Let me know!
This is me writing about stand-up comedy and the elaborate ways we use it to both lie and tell the truth at the same time. And since I’m a (relatively) new father, that came into it, too. Trivia: the knock-knock joke the little girl in the story tells was actually my own daughter’s first joke. It fit the story perfectly, so in it went.
Don’t worry, I’ll be back to my usual speculative fiction soon enough.
(For the record, I consider “Someone wore a Bazinga! t-shirt under a blazer.” to be the most obscene bit of the story.)
