26 parts of a Speculative Fiction story by J Lenni Dorner My head is throbbing. At least it’s dark in here. Where is here? This isn’t my couch in the basement, because there’s no bunched cushion lump under my back. It can’t be my bed, because it’s too small. And this isn’t my lawn chair. …

26 parts of a Speculative Fiction story by J Lenni Dorner My scream leaves me gasping, then gagging. My lungs are on fire. The rest of my body shivers and shakes, fighting against the cold.

26 parts of a Speculative Fiction story by J Lenni Dorner If I were sober, I could drive away. Somehow, I think my wife has sent this guy with his heavy accent as punishment for napping beside her grave. Again. “Genuine leather? Cannot be very warm.” “Full Grain. Genuine is crap.” I pull out my …

A #AtoZChallenge Attie Connolly the American #Fiction #SFF

26 parts of a Speculative Fiction story by J Lenni Dorner I let the upbeat song finish before I shut off my truck. One more deep, stalling breath. I get out, walk to the back, and open the liftgate. Cooler and blanket in hand, I trudge through the frosted, brown leaves. Thirty-seven rows down, two …
