August 2010 OneOff

Welcome to the the August 2010 OneOff story, a piece of genre flash fiction unbounded by the monthly ties of 10Flash threads.

This month’s story, Ole Stoney, is by Jude-Marie Green. Jude-Marie is associate editor of Abyss & Apex magazine and a graduate of the Clarion West Writers Workshop.

She writes ripping good speculative fiction and her work is equally leavened by sly humor and a strong sense of nostalgia. Check out Slim and Benny-Be-Damned Take It on the Lam in the October 2009 issue.

Ole Stoney is a tip-of-the-hat to Jude-Marie’s grandfather. I like this one a lot.



Ole Stoney

I called him Grampa. He tolerated that, but expected all of us to call him Stoney.

He was old, a Grampa is supposed to be, and was often absent from our three-story wooden house, landlocked on its safe street in a shore town. It wasn’t that he didn’t like us; he just was not the land-bound sort.
