‘Terra Firma’ published
September 1, 2013
The short story ‘Terra Firma’ has been published in the ‘Reaching Out’ anthology from Cinnamon Press.
All the water across the world is drying up. On a beach that no longer sees any waves, a boy asks his father what is happening while he hunts for a dead fish.
From the publisher’s write up: “Scarcity of detail, that aesthetic absence of comforting exposition, mirrors the more threatening and less abstract scarcities in the lives in both Christian Cook’s haunting future vision ‘Terra Firma’ and Sarah Hegarty’s gothic macabre ‘In the Blood’.”
