Another Girl Walks Home at Night: Flightless Rats, a Lagniappe

Speaking of vampires, today’s the day my short-short, “Flightless Rats” (see November 30, 26), has gone up on T. GENE DAVIS’S SPECULATIVE BLOG.  “Flightless Rats” tells of a brief encounter with the vampiress Aimée (who wCirqueduNuitBall-2013e may recall from “Casket Girls,” cf. April 17, et al.) about a century after her original 1728 arrival in New Orleans, who, finding herself temporarily between husbands, has decided to experiment with dating.

T. GENE DAVIS’S SPECULATIVE BLOG, to quote from its blurb, “releases a family-friendly speculative story every Monday, mostly by guest authors.”  Rather like DAILY SCIENCE FICTION, publisher of the original “Casket Girls,” it can be subscribed to for free and offers generally high quality fiction, also usually rather short.  It can be reached by pressing here to read “Flightless Rats,” as well as for information on signing up for those who wish to.

And yes, Aimée does walk home alone, at least on this night.


  1. “Flightless Rats” is a most entertaining story –don’t miss out on it!

  2. Marge, thanks. Also, it’s free 😀 !
