There have been some excellent submissions so far to Short Story Friday. But too many of them are from Popcorn Popping and several are rather self-serving. That’s not a bad thing at all and we will get to them, but to kick things off, I decided to dig deep in to Dialogue’s archives. Here’s what I came up with:
Title: The Willows
Author: Eileen Kump
Publication Info: Dialogue v. 8, no. 2 (1973)
Why?: For these words: “If she heard the boulder.” Sorry to be so coy, but really, when the story hit that point all of a sudden it got me good.
Note: If you perfectly center the bottom slider the text should just fit in the window. Otherwise you have to scroll left and right.
