Friday Flash Fiction: Built by Moonlight


Built by Moonlight
By Gareth D Jones


This story now appears in the Illuminations anthology.



The somewhat breathless style of this week's story was inspired by the Ray Bradbury collection that I'm currently reading. Many of his stories have that rambling style that drags you inexorably from paragraph to paragraph without time to pause.

I agree with you. There is a real narrative momentum here.

Really good - Bravo.

Lovely, I think you got the pacing down right there! It's all a bit Ozymandias, this, which is always good. I was wondering if this story is entirely fantastical, or if there is some link to a creature on Earth that builds habitats in this way?

Thanks for the feedback guys. The story is entirely fantastical, but I wish it were true!
