Courtship of the Sewer King – story up on Zero Flash

My flash fiction story “Courtship of the Sewer King” (click title for link) is available on the Zero Fiction April Entries Page (may need to scroll down to find it- search for “Casey” should do the trick).  Zero Flash is a speculative fiction site and runs month flash fiction contests (300 words or less) for different themes.  April 2017’s theme is simply “Horror”.  Easy enough, right?

My story is a companion piece that I wrote for writing friend Max Shephard’s newsletter that I titled “The Red Girls”.  This creepy 100 word drabble (available on the internet at the was begging for more exploration of its unstable, violent world.  Of course, ‘the sewer king’ ends up begging for more as well; perhaps I’ll have to add yet another piece to this dark flash fiction-ary puzzle.

Also, glad to also submit something to Zero Flash, brainchild of David J. Wing, whose short stories have appeared in many publications.  I would recommend his site for some great flash fiction, and for those looking to submit, there is even a monthly  prize of £10 for the best entry!
