Super happy to read a couple of positive reviews of my recent story, "Arkquarium" -- light Lovecraftian horror, inspired by the summer I worked at Sea World. In the linked article, the reviewer calls my story one of the standouts in the anthology.

And over at Goodreads, someone else wrote: "'Arkquarium' by Folly Blaine rocks a fantastic teen point of view and a super-creepy secret at the Arkham Aquarium. Fantastic!"

I'm so glad people are liking the antho!

"When a young art student falls for her instructor, she learns the secrets that are never taught in school—secrets kept by a twisted ruling class in a society where madness is the order of the day."

Today's Every Day Fiction Podcast is "Shadow Play" by Stephen V. Ramey. Runs 6 1/2 minutes. Here's the beginning:

"One day after pizza-for-dinner, Dad decided to teach me how to make shadow puppets. We stood by the desk in his office, a big beast of a thing with sharp-corner shoulders hunched down to hold a computer and its screen."
