Another short story from my strainge-fiction alter ego, Eric Stringer… although this one is almost mormal. To begin bluntly and at the beginning, my mother’s recent passing was a source of great distress for the men of the town and a source of great relief for the women.
LOVED this story. The way it builds and plays on assumptions/expectations then throws a total twist at the end. Stellar! I think this is my all-time favorite!
