Microprose from Paula Carter
Published in MAYDAY Magazine
¬†Well, I'm back from my "vacation" at the University of Nebraska, just one short semester away from receiving my Master's Degree. I'm beat, but I managed to look up a few short-short stories that you might enjoy checking out while you're pooping around online.
Here's an excerpt from "Mooring Stones," by Paula Carter:
≠He listens to the woman on the weather radio repeat the direction of the wind.¬† The tall evergreen trees on the west edge of the yard bend at the waist.¬† Beyond the trees there is a granite stone, large and loping, resting half in the ground and half turned out.¬† There is a hole, one inch around and four inches deep, on its flat belly.¬† After awhile Traver puts his boots back on and goes out to the stone to watch the storm clouds, to worry that it might hail. ≠
From Mayday Magazine, three short-shorts from Paula Carter:
I'll look for some more great stuff this weekend, before the Packers game.
