Forthcoming in 2023
A midwife and her talking horse stumble into the gunfight at the O.K. Corral. A recent college graduate meets her fairy godmother in the powder room of a fancy nightclub. A young boy confronts a terrifying family secret.
Carolyn R. Russell’s cross-genre collection of flash explores the far realms of our most basic instinct. Adaptation and resilience vie with expedience and desperation in stories that cut a wide swath across the vagaries of how humans (and non-humans) respond to uncertainty.
