“Everyone Gets a Happy Ending” — Interzone 268 (January 2017)

My story “Everyone Gets a Happy Ending” was published in the January/February 2017 issue of Interzone.

First Lines

“Baby bunnies,” Steph says, “herald the apocalypse. Kendra, you know that, right?”

“Painful truth,” I reply, even as I luxuriate in the soft fur pressing against my arms. The heat is oppressive. Sweat soaks the back of my shirt, drips from the fine hairs at the nape of my neck. It’s dusk in southwest Arizona and Steph and I are far from home. Spring is supposed to mean daffodils and tender shoots of Chemlawned grass. Instead, the Arizona air pulls the moisture right from my lips—the dark reverse of a lover’s kiss.

Praise

“[a] very unusual well-told tale”
