Deal Me In “Extra!”:
I have a few Google Alerts set up to lead me to new items of interest on the Internet. Naturally, one of them looks for short story-related URLs. A lot of the hits there are of no interest to me, but every now and then a valuable nugget emerges from this short story sluice box (I know, that’s sort of a mixed metaphor(? is that usage even correct?) since sluice boxes aren’t used to discover nuggets).
Anyway, it happened Sunday when a link to a very short – and scary – story by Neil Gaiman plopped out. Check out the link below for his story “Click Clack the Rattlebag” which I thought I’d share- especially since it can be read in under five minutes. It gave me a couple goosebumps this morning as I was reading. (Of course this might be because it’s FREEZING here at my Panera this morning)
