“Curse Upon a Star” Published in The Molotov Cocktail

My story, “Curse Upon a Star,” is now up at The Molotov Cocktail.


This story got a “close but no cigar” mention in their recent flash fiction contest (Flash Phenom), and upon resubmitting, was accepted for a regular issue.

“Night after night, Ida dreams of bones. They’re snow-white and perfect with a sheen like milk teeth.”
