flesh phantoms by Alan P. Scott

cynical biped

The stories here are short (some very short) and are mostly sf – that is, speculative fiction: fantasies, myths, science fiction, slipstream . . . all the flavors of fabulation except, I hope, for the mundane.

By JPV1000, author of Warbler

Nov 6, 2015: So here’s the thing: Thousand Word Blog isn’t exactly a serial. It’s a regularly updating blog with short fiction, some of it quite good. I liked a lot of the stories on there.
