Horror Flash Fiction – A Taste for Life

There’s a new flash fiction story by Patrick Freivald over at Flash Fiction Online that you should really check out, especially if you like it when your stories come with a healthy dose of creepiness.  It’s called A Taste for Life

“And how old were you when you died, Mister Beauchamp?” Joan Rothman asked, leaning back in her chair. The scientists watched her behind the one-way mirror, hands clasped behind their backs.  “Twenty-seven,” the corpse replied, more gurgle than speech, as it gazed idly around the interview room.

Nasty, Brutish, and Short

Nasty, Brutish, and Short…no, I’m not talking about my ex (or yours)NBNS is a site featuring the flash fiction of Patrick M. Tracy.  I especially liked Little Mementos.  Here’s a snippet:

“Sandy Beckford, his partner in Robbery/Homicide, got a good snicker out of it.  Alex remembered when she’d have been sick looking at something like this, the unknown victim in an alley next to a dumpster, his face knocked off the rough and dirty way.  He liked her better now, those delicate parts of her broken.”

You can read the entire story at the link above.  Patrick offers to share the limelight and post the work of other authors on his site, as well.

He recently had one of his stories, Cleanup Crew, published in Tales of the Zombie War, an online journal with the very specific focus of “works of zombie apocalypse fiction.”
