Marrow is a collection of 28 flash stories. Ranging from a minuscule 13 words to a respectable 1,000, each of these stories is a fragment of something bigger – a hot core in the heart – a little piece of marrow.
These tall tales feature fighter pilots and guinea pigs, wishing trees and wet weekends, untuned pianos, tattoos, voodoos, daydreams, inks and avocados. There are private eyes and talking poppets – lions and lemons – selkies and tsunamis.
Around half the stories have been published by journals and websites including Gutter, Fractured West, Valve, Flashtag, Paragraph Planet, 1000 Words, Causeway, Smoke and The Dark Mountain Project, which is pretty cool. The other half are new and waiting for a reader exactly like you.
