The On-and-On Tin

Literary Fantasy - Speculative

by Sean McSweeney

"When she first arrived they said nothing to her, they just looked. An ordinary enough woman, halfway through her life perhaps … modest and respectful, but they were shocked at this female on her own. She said her village had been wiped out in a mudslide, she alone had survived. The gods favoured her, then? No, she said, just lucky." (from "Too Much Too Soon")

Across twenty bite-size flash-fiction stories of no more than 500 words each, the reader can travel from Pre-Conquest Latin America to Post-Catastrophe Britain; or see inside the mind of Don Quixote's horse and the mind of an impatient would-be suicide bomber; or meet the mythological character who delights in other people's dilemmas and the woman who decided not to tell the world about her supernatural experiences. Perhaps you will find the answer to questions you never thought to ask: What was the real effect of The Great Plague? And how did British cities end up with such woeful transport provision?

If you get annoyed when others try to tell you what to feel, you'll sympathise with Jeffery in "Che Bello!" And if some people just leave you exhausted but you don't understand why, you'll sympathise with Eddie in "is This a Law of Thermodynamics?"
