#fridayflash – The Ebsen Reaction

There used to be a story here, all for free, but I ripped it out and shoved it inside a Kindle book with a bunch of other stories. You can buy it for less than a dollar by clicking the banner.

  1. Man, I really enjoy all your writing that I’ve read, and the comics as well. Can’t believe I’ve still not got either of your books. I need to sort that shit out!

  2. Wow! Where to start? First, I love the subject. I can see a pill like this coming one day. My mind immediately ran wild with other implications. Like, even if people did procreate, how long would our offspring survive if we couldn’t love them? Not a society I would want to be a part of. And then, taking it to the level of your characters- oooo, the heartbreak! You did an excellent job showing us just what they were losing from his decision.
    Can’t wait to read more from you!

  3. Definitely a pill like this in our near future. Great story – how tragic for his wife. Welcome to #fridayflash!

  4. Wow, what a story! Great use of language too – I love the word “ticklefight”, just perfect to describe that feeling.
    Welcome to #fridayflash!

  5. Great piece! The ending was perfect. Poor Rachel!

  6. Oh, wow–tragic. From beginning to end, really (society first, then it mirrored in an individual’s life). The piece raises all kinds of questions about what numbing-out does to us–and, what is the purpose of grief, and of what is love composed? The language is wonderful. Wonderful debut. Welcome to #fridayflash!

  7. An enjoyable yet disturbing read that poses interesting questions about emotions – a life without love would on one hand protect us from so much pain, but on the other would stop us from experiencing some of our greatest opportunities for pleasure. Great debut!

  8. Fabulous story. Love your writing. And I live in Littlehampton, so it’s extra special!
