You'd think Ms. Griffeth's home "on the verge of the Great SmokyMountains National Park" would give her work a pastoral bent. Yetthis wicked bit of flash fiction is sharp-edged, gristly andgrinning, packing some casual consumer biotech and a wrylyfashion-conscious narrator.
I loves me some blurbs.
The thing I love about The Fabulist is the edgy nature of the material they publish. It's not your momma's spec fic--it really goes more into the high literary, magically realistic, surrealist fiction. And when I jump into spec--that's usually where I'm going. When I found them, I was 99 percent sure I'd found the perfect landing place for "The Skin Shop."
