Fiction: "Members of the Story" by Ann Bogle
Published in BLIP Magazine
... Formerly the Mississippi Review Online. Ah, it's always nice to see the bigger literary journals dip their toes into the Internets. I think there should be a rule: literary journals should evolve technologically at a faster pace than President George W. Bush. That means if George W. Bush sets up a blog, every literary journal in the country should already have one set up. If George W. Bush starts tweeting, every literary journal in the country should already be tweeting.
And if George W. Bush posts stories online, then God help us all.
This is a story from another journal mentioned by Flavorwire, BLIP. It's called "Members of the Story" and the author is Ann Bogle:
They will drive in the morning to see the leaves change color in Vermont.Â Ms. Cerumbyk has already checked in to the hotel.Â That is what the doctor tells Memerlou on the telephone next.Â Memerlou considers visiting her, calling the front desk, or staying alone without calling her.Â She decides to wait until morning.
Sometimes people forget that the doctor is not a medical doctor.Â He is a doctor of philosophy in pharmacology.Â He holds the patent for a bone densifying drug.Â He has something against cosmetic surgery.Â He cannot forgive his ex-wife for changing her nose and breasts or allowing their sons to digitize photos ofÂ women.
