A capella Zoo Online

I mentioned a while back that A cappella Zoo was going online with stories. Well, you can now read "A Sort of Honeymoon" from issue #2 for free. The story lands just over 1,000 words, so it'll be quick and painless. I promise.

It's not a horror story. Not even dark.

In fact, I write an awful lot of not-so-dark fantasyesque shorts. Maybe the ol' blog needs another face lift?

That got me all emotional *sigh* I remember those old jungle gyms. I also remember the wonderful metal horses on the swing-set. All gone, replaced with plastic crap.

I enjoyed that sentimental story. Quite a bit different than your usual fare.

Danielle Ferries said...

I like it. It got me all sentimental for back in the day when everyone knew each other in the neighbourhood.

Awesome story Aaron. Really good.

Really liked that, Aaron. It was different in a way, but the skillful buildup of tension was not. You play us like a friggin piano. Niiiice.

Left me smiling. What "The Mangler" might have been if Stephen King had had a happier childhood.

This Aaron fella's got some talent! Gonna keep my eye on him.

Nice little tale, Aaron. I’m all for a bit of sentimentality now and then.

Barry Napier said...

Very nice. Show's that you have not only talent, but range as well.,

Great job!

Aaron Polson said...

Thanks, everyone. I wrote that story after reading Jeff Vandermeer's Secret Lives. I don't really know why...maybe secretly I'm a sentimental sot.

That was strangely moving. I love the way you describe the neighborhood. :)

That's a beautiful story, Aaron. So original and imaginative and awe-inspiring. I'm going to carry it around with me for the day.

Oh, but I should add that it's missing one thing - a trailer. ;)
