As a science fiction author, my first professional sale was to Bull Spec
magazine, and the PDF version of issue #5 — which includes my story "Absinthe Fish" — is online now. (The print version will be released this Friday evening at the "NC Speculative Fiction Night #3"
at Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh.)
just reviewed the new issue of Bull Spec
, and Lois Tilton singled out "Absinthe Fish" with a very favorable recommendation:
“Absinthe Fish” by M David Blake
A lovely hallucinatory meditation on the metaphors of infinite possibility.
Schrödinger’s cat frequently brings wet paws, and tiny, cold droplets of water make their way into the absinthe. Absinthe also frequently makes its way into the cat, which undoubtedly contributes to the feline’s pixelated state.The sort of thing that makes short-short fiction worthwhile, because something like this can not possibly be longer and remain readable.
