On The Brink Of An Unknown Future

'Clouds Roll Over The Valley' by Peter Isherwood

The next Flash Fiction in the sequence has been published by the lovely people over at Imaginalis!

This story references a famous quote by John Wyndham, from his 1951 novel 'The Day of the Triffids': '
And we danced, on the brink of an unknown future, to an echo from a vanished past.'  

I'd been wanting to pay homage to Wyndham for a while - you can't really write about aggressive botany without including some kind of Triffid quote! The 80s BBC adaptation of the book which I watched as a child still haunts me to this day...

These flash stories all precede my (as yet unpublished) novel: Machine Songs (working title).  If you want to read them in order, check out the separate page at the head of the blog entitled: 'The Machine Sequence.'
