And here’s a brief excerpt from “Firefly Igloo,” my flash fiction story:

The house next door to Marta’s had an octopus living in the hanging basket over the front porch, right where a plant should have been. The backyard had a fence made of pine trees and every night a green glow came through the cracks between the trees. Grownups said that Marta’s neighbor was a witch and that she hated children, but Marta knew better than to always believe what grownups said.

Issue #10 is also available for purchase in printed form.
