My flash fiction story, “Skin”, is now live on the Kasma SF Magazine website.
The story even has its own illustration, which really brings to life some of the more disturbing aspects of this story.
“Skin” was born out of my frustration over BART passengers frequently cutting in line during peak commuting hours. No one ever seemed to challenge these people, so I would. I’d say things like: “Hey you, there’s a line here” and “Are you so special you get to cut in line?” etc. When I did these things, many passive BART riders looked at me like I was the crazy one.
Either way, the line-cutter in this story pays a rather gruesome price for her transgression.
I hope you enjoy the story.
