Today I read Aqua-birds by Mike Russell. Aqua-birds is a brilliant little piece of flash fiction. It’s sad and thought-provoking, conjuring up rich images in the reader’s imagination.
“The aqua-birds’ thirst induces hallucinations of extraordinarily beautiful and ornate birdbaths.”
I read Aqua-birds over on Scriggler.com – go and have a read and then come back to tell me what you think in the comments!
Mike Russell’s stories have been described as “high minded weirdness” and I haven’t come across any authors writing in quite the same style. There’s another one of his short stories available free here. Mike is based in Brighton in the UK.
I'm interested in all things odd, strange and unusual.
I also work over at strangebooks.com and I'm an artist and teacher.
