Pluto – Flash Fiction Podcast at Cast of Wonders

My flash fiction story, Pluto, is now available as a podcast at Cast of Wonders. It features a failed space trip to retrieve Poseidon’s triton, a stopover in Pluto, and the discovery of dinosaurs. This piece was originally published in Lightning Cake last year, and I’m really glad it found a second home here. M.K. Hobson performs the reading. The Cast of Wonders podcast, which focuses on YA speculative fiction, is edited by Marguerite Kenner.

Lightning Cake and Compsognathus on Pluto

Lightning Cake published my flash story Pluto! Sarah and her space crew stop on lush Pluto for a much-needed respite. Things start off innocently enough when they befriend a tiny compsognathus.

Read my story Pluto here. And be sure to check out the rest of The Moon Cake, aka the second edition of Lightning Cake. A Tumblr-based magazine of illustrated flash fiction, they have lots of pretty and whimsical stories, including moon cakes by Rebecca Emanuelsen, Kristian Ashley Macaron, Julia August, Gwendolyn Edward, Alena McNamara, Trevor Shikaze, Jamie Lackey, KL Pereira, and Emily Beyda.

Several of my personal favorites:

Migration by Susan Anspach.

Cumulus by L. Chapman.

The Wallpaper Must Go by Rebecca Emanuelsen.

My Mars Base by Trevor Shikaze.

Lucy and Eve Go Out For Coffee in the Land of the Dead by Emily Beyda.

In addition to tiny speculative stories, Lightning Cake has art! This issue’s stories were illustrated by Scotland-based artist Jen Muir.
