Cargo at Fictive Dream

screen shot 2019-01-03 at 19.40.03I have a small city. It doesn’t have a name, all I know is it’s somewhere in Europe and was inspired by places like Garrison Keillor’s Lake Wobegon and Jan Morris’ Hav. I once read a superb short story set in the (fictional) People’s Republic of O, created when the former Czechoslovakia split into the Czech Republic, Slovakia. And O.

I have set a number of stories in my (as yet) unnamed city, modern day urban fables, owing more than a little to Shaun Tan’s superb little book, Tales from Outer Suburbia, which I highly recommend.

The latest ‘Cargo’ was picked for the 17th Stroud Short Stories event back in November. It has been accepted by Fictive Dream for Flash Fiction February 2019 and will be published on the 14th February 2019.
