SnowblindMy short story ‘Snow Blind’ has been published in Wordland 4, the ‘Whited Sepulchres’ issue, alongside works by Allen Ashley, Gary Budgen, Mark Howard Jones and Terry Grimwood. You can read the full issue here: http://wordland4.weebly.com/home.html

And here is my story: http://wordland4.weebly.com/snow-blind.html

And here is the premise for the issue:

Wordland 4: Whited Sepulchres
“…for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward
but are within full of dead mens  bones and of all uncleaness.” The Gospel of St Matthew 23:27

Whited sepulchres
Whitewashed and gleaming in in the sun.

Whited sepulchres
The politician’s smile
The deceiver’s handshake
The freshly painted house of secrets

Whited sepulchres
We know where to find them
Let us show you.
Take our clammy, tremulous hands, and we will lead you inside and deep into their rotten hearts.”
