Today only, go to Amazon.com to download the FREE Kindle version of Eric Bosse’s terrific story collection Magnificent Mistakes. Lots of flash fictions and in this collection of 19 stories. Here’s an excerpt from one of my favorite short-short stories, “House of Ghosts”:
The back door swings open, and the ghost of my father’s lover stands there in the moonlight. I offer him tea. He accepts and smiles as if death were an exquisite pleasure. I pour hot water into a World’s Best Mom mug and tell him it’s been five days since the night my wife called me David.
Download it today to read the rest of the story (it’s only two pages!).
