The Art of Drowning – a nail biting episode 8 – by Phil Huston

Caswell reached over Kylie’s shoulder, tapped the mouse, dragged the playback bar backwards under the video. He let it play for a few seconds and tapped it again. “There. That frame. Clean it up. Get it out to the two closest coastal territorials. If nothing drops, expand. North and south, not inland.” “He came in … Continue reading The Art of Drowning – a nail biting episode 8 – by Phil Huston

The Art of Drowning -episode 7- by Jac Forsyth

Faded and feathered know the solemn dancer. They fold with it and scold with it, and heaven knows they grow old with it.

Xylophones, the sound of hailstones hitting them in a competition of accelerating crescendos is what she hears when … Continue reading The Art of Drowning -episode 3- by Ash N Finn

The Art of Drowning -episode 2- by Phil Huston

Shona Nevill watched Casswell’s expression change as he got closer, just like the air. A half a mile away where they’d both parked it was almost twenty degrees warmer. And a lot drier. The cold, wet air howled off the sea and up the shallow cliffs then somehow lost its push over that short distance. … Continue reading The Art of Drowning -episode 2- by Phil Huston
