“Copy Machine” live at Flash Fiction Online
My story “Copy Machine” is now available in the June issue of Flash Fiction Online.
And there’s art! I think that’s the first time someone has done art for one of my stories. Author achievement unlocked!
I’m quite happy with this story. I had just finished reading the excellent “If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love” (which has since won a Nebula) and I thought, “Why don’t stories like this ever have a happy ending?” So I sat down and wrote this in a sitting, and I’m very happy with how it came out. It doesn’t bear much resemblance to the inspiration, other than the 2nd person.
I encourage you to go take a look, however, be aware: in Flash Fiction Online land, stories look back at you!
