The Interview

The immigration officer was quite bored when a took a nicotine gum from its package in order to put it in his mouth. He had interviewed more than two dozens of prospective immigrants that day and it was already late. Nevertheless he was not yet able to leave his office as there was one applicant left to be interviewed. While he was chewing the immigration officer asked the man sitting on the opposite side of his desk: Continue reading →

The hearing

A middle-aged, hairy man stepped into a small room. There he found a half-dozen of other folks, who did not look at him with joy. Quite the contrary, he could see the others were angry, very angry at him. He would not be here, if he were not summoned to come to this place – and even being summoned was not sufficient reason for him to actually show up here. It was their threat to kill him, if he did not come here, which convinced him to joy these folks. Continue reading →

Simone de Beauvoir University

Simone de Beauvoir University was the second oldest non-terrestrial university, after the University of Ilium Novum.

Female rider marries her horse

By our editors in Ilium Novum

An Elysian equestrian loves her horse so much that she decided to get married with her gelding. In an unofficial wedding ceremony Mary Elizabeth and her horse Xerxes were pronounced wife and husband earlier this day.

Though the marriage has no legal significance, the newly wed Mary Elizabeth was very excited. According to her, “Xerxes is a very faithful partner”. The husband seemed to enjoy to wedding carrot cake which was served after the ceremony.

Consummation of the marriage seems unlikely, however, as bestiality carries a life sentence under Elysian law.

Pony play

Though betting on horse racing had been illegal for several years, the old hippodrome still attracts hundreds of men, women and children each weekend. And the bookmakers were still busy with taking bets on the races in the hippodrome, since the clever entrepreneurs had found a legal loophole to continue their profitable business.

I have good experience in writing flash fiction for a Dutch story site, so I have decided to also write flash fiction in English. With flash fiction I refer to stories of a few hundred words – up to one thousand.

It’s my intention to publish one to two flash fiction stories on this site each week and to publish a longer story (up to 3,000 words) at least once a month.

The flash fiction will be either stand-alone stories or part of a series. But the themes of this FF stories will be same as the other stories on this side.

Besides this changes I will continue with my “contemplation” articles and occasional reviews.
