I have a story, The Midnight March, in the April 2012 issue of Bards and Sages Quarterly. It’s a melancholy little piece of flash fiction that scratched the itch of a particular idea in my head.
Humanising monsters isn’t a new theme. From Mary Shelley to Joss Whedon, it’s been used to emphasise our own humanity, or provide contrast with the brutality in man. I’ve used a defining point (maybe the defining point) in all our lives to nudge around that theme, and though I can’t say I’ve covered it too deeply in the space of a thousand words, I’m happy with what I’ve achieved, and I hope you will be too.
