I wrote a piece of flash fiction over the weekend called They’re Harvesting Stars, You Know?, which I’ve just posted in a couple places. I usually work in science-fiction & fantasy, but this is a step or two outside of my comfort zone, falling instead into magical realism. It’s all of 900 words (or 4 minutes by Medium’s estimation), and I’d be tickled pink of you’d hop over and give it a read.

You can find the piece at Medium.com;

Or with an ambient soundtrack at Booktrack.

Cheers, and I hope you enjoy!

    Nice Chris. Not your usual style, but still nice. Quiet, romantic and, of course, a little strange.

  2. Superb. You pulled me into a magical moment and let me sit and listen to a poetic dream and private connection. I am a trespasser peering in the sky watching the white paint splatter disappear a spot at a time, just like that, with an extended finger and somehow holding my breath wishing it isn’t so… great read.
