Many thanks to ed. Rosemary Long at Tribe for publishing “Feast” in Thief: Issue 3, just out today. To jump to the story, here’s a link.
I’m excited to see the table of contents also includes stories by many writers whose work I admire, including Stephanie Hutton and Nod Ghosh.
This is one of the shorter stories I’ve had published lately, weighing in at only 100 words. It’s a look at the future, and was written in future-perfect tense, which gives it that uncanny weird feeling of inevitability. Future perfect is weird.
That’s a fun exercise, by the way. Choose a tense, or a part of speech, and write a story using only that form. I think I had an all-verb story go up on Visual Verse once about Ted Talks. :o)
In any case, I hope you enjoy the new issue of Thief — they put a lot of time and thought in the design, and the artwork is very apropos! “Feast” has an animation behind it — that’s a first for me and I think it’s really sharp. Something about that knife in the ham…
The animator, Tugce Audoire, does not have a Twitter page, but she’s got other samples of her work available on Vimeo, here.
Thanks for visiting my blog, and I hope you enjoy “Feast.”
p.s. the featured image on this blog post is of a Giant Ichneumon Wasp. There’s something a bit terrifying about them, too. But that’s a story for another day.
