The sense of humor before his final moments. Damn impressive and more confident than myself when facing the guillotine. I took another sip from my highball.

The Squirrel
John Teel

SHORT STORY<br>The Squirrel<br>John Teel

He was ugly. He had a giant tail, longer than any I'd ever seen on a squirrel before. His filthy little chest heaved in and out and his mouth was wide open. The strangest thing was his head. Since the latch was open I assumed he tumbled down the chimney, scraping his head as he fell. The hair on top of his head was missing and the skin was blotchy and red. He looked like Peter Boyle if he had been covered in fur. 

A man's life falls apart after a visit from a particuarly vicious rodent in "The Squirrel" from John Teel.

Olin Wish

Ever wondered what happens in Hell? Olin Wish explore's an eternity of window shopping in his flash fiction piece, "Hell is a Place Full of Window Shoppers" 

The wife had been waiting with the stroller at the store entrance.  She and the baby had died first.  The kids followed shortly thereafter.  Clean lines, harsh light, and eternity passed at a snail’s crawl in a warehouse for the damned without a dollar to spend or a house to fill with ugly furniture.  Revolving, single file, through a mystical small intestine.  If only they had decided to fly to Disney world instead of drive, he had thought on more than one occasion in those early days.
