Publication: "Dead Things in the Garden" in Thanatos Review

My micro-fiction story "Dead Things in the Garden" is out now in Thanatos Review's Issue 2 on Grief & Grieving. This is a death-positive magazine, which means matters around death are accepted and celebrated as a natural part of life. My story is about someone working in a garden and speaking to their deceased spouse. It's a near future sci-fi glimpse about how we might handle death and burial differently than we do today. Read it for free online here: "Dead Things in the Garden"

Micro Fiction Acceptance! "Dead Things in the Garden"

I'm delighted to share that I received an acceptance from Thanatos Review for a micro fiction story I submitted to their special spring issue on Grief & Grieving. The story is called "Dead Things in the Garden" and is a death positive story told by a widower reflecting on his wife's passing as he tends her garden. I'll share the link when it's published!
