Blerrie Fockin’ Beautiful: Narrative Magazine Story of the Week

Blerrie Fockin’ Beautiful has been selected as this week’s Story of the Week in Narrative Magazine.  They have rendered it beautifully.

Set in the Apartheid era, circa 1950’s on a Platteland farm near Pretoria, it tells a biblical tale of pride and retribution. An audio on Narrative is scheduled soon. Recovering it made me homesick.

Entirely fictional characters but one totally true element. Perhaps if you read it you might guess which.

This publication is a first for any short story of mine and others are now shouting for attention! I hope some will enjoy.
