Flash fiction on Torsade. My very short pieces are mostly given historical settings. I’ve chosen a slide format to make the reading experience resemble a magazine’s, an old-fashioned digest (apropos), as well as for easy pinning.


“May Day”—light comedy with a serious undertone; a cold war tale set in 1951.
