I get bored easily, so rather than the political links I usually run on Sundays, I’m gonna switch it up. Instead, here’s a list of five awesome and fun and weird and very short stories that I happened to come across while reading through some independent online lit mags, complete with a great sentence from each story. Enjoy!
“I found a medium-sized elephant in my garage, so I put him in a jar and now I feed him toast and jelly.” — At elimae, “The Elephant” by Ian Bassingthwaighte.
“This is because my hair knows that we will be forgotten.” AT PANK, “How To Do Your Makeup Like a Star” by Ani Smith.
“He threw away all his father’s money, and burned down Harvard when his family sent him there.” At NOÖ Journal, “Indian Jones” by A D Jameson.
“One could sign a book deal inside a vegetable.” — At La Petite Zine, “To Live Inside a Vegetable” by Jennifer Gravley.
“If the teeth are this good then imagine what my appendix must be like.” — At Agni Online, “The Statue Game” by Kuzhali Manickavel.
