Read it for free by downloading the eZine at Sirens Call Publications. It’s on page 37.
I’ve finally got around to adding further short stories that have either not been published previously in other media or were published but as unsuccessful competition entries. That doesn’t make them bad stories necessarily (or good for that matter), just ones not chosen by that particular judge on that day. If you want to read any of them please click on this Testbed link.
