I spent a year in St John’s, the capital of what I consider the most beautiful province in Canada. I often climbed Signal Hill, which overlooks the city and the harbour, giving fantastic views. It’s windy up there, and you often get ‘weather’, but it’s a great climb, and there are several hiking paths. And yeah, once I was climbing up there and thinking about aliens. And about skin. This is the story that popped out.
Saturday Night Reader (SNR) is a flash fiction magazine published out of Ottawa, Ontario. The stories are free to read online – ideal for your commute, so check them out!
I have also been informed by the editor that this story is going to be part of their sixth issue, due out in October 2015. So looking forward to that.
