My latest flash fiction piece, The Ape at the End of the Barrel, is currently published on microhorror.com. Microhorror has published a decent number of dark fiction writers who have a genuine interest in communicating a message via horror stories–as opposed to the kind of self-aggrandizement that modern literature (The MFA/MLA kind, usually) seems to want to promulgate. You can view my work on their website, here: http://www.microhorror.com/microhorror/author/derek-alan-wilkinson/the-ape-at-the-end-of-the-barrel/
And thank you to the site’s (probably overworked) editor, Nathan Rosen (Twitter: @BlackDogNate)
I’d also like to insert that, while I take a (somewhat) neutral stance to gun control laws, this story does give a little insight as to what I think about the nature of guns–a stance that I’m not sure how to handle or accept.
