Another beautiful short...

I just read another beautiful short at Pygmy Giant. Weird name for a 'e-magazine, a Forum, a poetry slam, or a sticky table in the corner of a dingy pub', which is how it describes itself.

It seems to be one of the few places for British flash fiction... and I love the most recent story on there 'Retrospective with Mum' by Martin Reed. It's achingly sad, touching, beautifully-written, original. It captures the scene, the relationship and the fading character of mum so vividly.

I love finding good short shorts... the kind that makes me feel what I can only describe as a hum inside.
