The Edible Woman in the Cinema Box-Office

Baker Street Cinema, Abergavenny. Copyright Jeremy Bolwell, licensed for use under Creative Commons Licence.

After Abergavenny had been without a cinema for a long time, a couple of years ago one finally opened here. I celebrated this by writing a very short story, The Edible Woman in the Cinema Box-Office, which was published in Short,Fast,and Deadly, in its issue number 33, 25 July 2010.

When I heard that the flash fiction site Leodegraunce was inviting submissions for an issue on the theme of cinema, and would consider previously-published stories, I put this story forward. To my delight it was chosen, and features on the site for one week starting today, alongside an interview with me on the site’s blog page. 

Go read and enjoy!
