Atelic. My first submission! This was shortlisted for the Writers' & Artists' Yearbook short story competition 2010. The theme was 'union or unity'.

This story is now available to download from Ether Books.

Wow! That was heartbreakingly painful to read and really well written. Thank you.

Then allow me to follow up by saying that was eerie and morbid and fascinating. Like a fucked up Cormac McCarthy fable - and matching those for fucked up isn't easy. Great work!

Pinkwood said...

Wow! Cormac McCarthy - I'm speechless! What an awesome compliment. Thanks so much :)

Thanks sooo much Summer! It sounds like we probably have a fair bit in common! ;) I've just ordered your recommendation from Amazon. Always excited to find a new writer x

Hollowdoll - thanks again! I will try and post some more shorts here really soon and I'm stoked you are taking an interest. I work full time and am just finishing my first novel so time is my main problem - not enough hours in a day! But please keep coming back and hopefully it will be worth your while soon :) x
