At the launch of the flash fiction anthology called “Story Cities: A City Guide For The Imagination” published by Arachne Press and available at this web shop, I was invited to close the show of live readings. It was subsequently called a ‘glorious finale’ on Twitter, which is nice. You can suffer it too by using this YouTube link
I have to say I wrote it as a rather dark piece, and was therefore slightly surprised by the amount, and timing, of the laughter. Perhaps they saw (heard) something that I didn’t, perhaps it was hollow. Whatever. We used to say in business that ‘the customer is never entirely wrong’, and the same goes for the listener/reader. I enjoyed the applause.
