Beautiful and touching. I love this author’s style and use of language in this story.
I looked up what “Amor Fugit” means after I read the story, as my Latin is a bit…well, non-existent, and it means, “fugitive love.” Learning that made the story all the more meaningful to me. I love that phrase, fugitive love. Beautifully written story, with a kind of subtle tension that tugs you gently forward without you realizing it. It’s no wonder it was selected for The Year’s Best Science Fiction & Fantasy 2011.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a free posting of this story online (and I can’t ignore the one of the markets I most want to break into), but I did find this cool interview with the author in which this story is mentioned.
Cute story. Although I was expecting a twist at the end, I wasn’t expecting that one. For that, I give it a thumbs-up. I like being surprised. 🙂
As I can’t locate a free posting of his story either, I offer you another cool author interview.
Intense piece of flash fiction. Vivid imagery.
By the way, I love this author’s first name. I fell in love with it when “Legend” came out with Tom Cruise. 🙂 Therefore, I love the name of her blog.
This might be the best piece of flash fiction I’ve read recently. Nicely done.
