The short story I mentioned last time is now out and in the world! (And, in truth, has been available for about a month.)
“Provisions” is about a father/daughter pair of post-Revolutionary American missionaries whose clothes get stolen while they’re bathing in a creek.
You can order a copy for $5 (or $2.50 if you opt for the PDF version) from The First Line’s website—Vol. 19, Iss. 4: “I’m tired of trying to see the good in people.”
The issue also includes a suicidal vegan, some animosity between a pig and a goat, an interesting relationship between a robot and his repairman, and more. I hope you enjoy the read!
