Bit of an odd short for you this time. Not sure where the idea came from (although the quote from another book hidden in this story might be part of it), and the title was slow in coming (and is another quote from a different book), but I’m pleased with how it turned out.
It’s called ‘…if you only walk long enough‘, and you can read it here. As usual, I’d love to hear any thoughts on it (I’m interested to see how many people spot where the quotes come from — the one used in the story itself is becoming something of a classic now).
If you want more short fiction, don’t forget the other forty-two stories on this site. You can read them here (and if we’re playing about with quotes, the number forty-two could count as another).
