Voluted Tales/Darkness Internal Now Available with Extinctions

This is another overseas publication, this time from Australia, for which the word travels slowly back to the computer cave — in this case by an almost chance encounter on the internet.  This is the VOLUTED TALES themed issue DARKNESS INTERNAL 3 with DI Ish 3 Oct 2014my reprint story “Extinctions”(cf. May 27, September 9), for more on which — or to see what I have seen — one may press here.

As for “Extinctions,” it’s an odd little tale originally published in THE BLUE LADY for Autumn 1996, concerning a man who reads newspaper headlines — lots of newspaper headlines current at the time the story was written — and has a job in a nuclear power plant.  He also has taken up astronomy as a hobby and has become convinced the Earth may be destroyed on New Year’s Eve 1999.  He’s also interested in mass extinctions.

Or, as the subtitle in DARKNESS INTERNAL suggests:  “Humanity has always looked to the sky for answers, and sometimes it has responded with comets.”
