Congratulations to Alpha graduate Claire Spaulding (2014) whose story “Chocolate Chip Cookies for the Apocalypse” appeared yesterday at Daily Science Fiction:
I can’t believe how bright and sharp and silver the stars look at three in the morning between gaps in the clouds. A few flakes flutter through the warm night air. What people have been calling “goodbye flurries.” White snowflakes mixed with hot black ash. When the goodbye flurries show up, you know the doomsday front is only a day or two away from your town.
