"Soul Marbles" at Every Day Fiction

You can read my journeyman story, "Soul Marbles", at Every Day Fiction today. I use the word journeyman because a few top-notch flash markets have held it for "final review" and then rejected it in the end. I'm glad it finally has a home.

Is it speculative? I'll leave that for you to decide (and you will have to decide). As always, I appreciate the read, the rating, and any comments, good or bad, you choose to make.

I'm off to our "league" forensics meet today. It would be nice to bring home the banner...

Good luck! I'll check out the story a bit later, after my class. I really hate 7AM.

Congrats on the story, Aaron. I'll pop over soon and good luck on your Meet (if you don't get it, you can always sneak it away from the other undeserving team :) )

Read and commented :) Very thought provoking. I loved it.

SPECULATIVE... :D

There were so souls in those marbles.

Nice job! Enjoyed the narrator's voice, and the rhythm of the prose. And a nice juxtaposition of catharsis and sorrow throughout the story.

I thought I commented on this, and was shocked when I went to do the post-long-weekend blog catchup.

Now I see I did it on twitter. So I'll put it here too for posterity:

Packs a wallop, as usual, Aaron. Loved it.

Really, I mean that. As a bonus, I'd like to tell you that if I read a story of yours in a mass of other stories with no name on it, I would most certainly suspect very strongly it had been written by you. Not because they're at all similar, but because you make everything yours, and it's brilliant.
