Ένα ποίημα σε ελεύθερο στίχο που έγραψα πέρυσι με αφορμή λογοτεχνικό δρώμενο. Κάποιοι προβληματισμοί και έντονες σκέψεις για την πραγματικότητα που βιώνουμε στην Ελλάδα, για την αισιοδοξία που με κρατά δυνατή ψάχνοντας να βρω τους απομείναντες...

The story was first published on The Weekly Knob on Medium. https://medium.com/the-weekly-knob/fruit-fly-9c78353ac4c7#.rb9zytuhx This is a flash tale about the intricate delicacies of destruction and chaos through the marvel and wonder of the human intelligence. A technological impossibility rises up through the eons in order to provide its inventors with cheap and affordable energy. The story takes place around a star and two engineers are about to complete the greatest structure ever to be completed. Enjoy.

Short stories are a great place to experiment with concepts and ideas and this is a short piece (even for a short story) which combines those end-of-the-world 80s movies with a few of the many conspiracies that are out there. Sorry if that offends anyone. Actually no I'm not. If you don't like it, don't read it. The story isn't true, it's not my opinion or in any way meant to attack anyone. It's just one of those "What if..." scenarios and I think it's a little humorous too.

A woman wants a little child, and when she goes to a witch that's exactly what she gets. Thumbelina is borne of a kernel of barley-corn. Thumbelina lives with the woman who wished for her, with tiny possessions befitting her size. She is pretty and sings beautifully. But one night an ugly old toad steals into the home and sees in Thumbelina a bride for her even uglier son. (Who can only croak, though the mom can speak.) She snatches Thumbelina away from the only home she's known. Thumbelina is held captive on a lily pad in a marsh until some fish - who understand her plight - sever the lily pad, allowing it to float away. Thumbelina's praises are sung by the birds she passes, and she's befriended by a butterfly as she sails downriver on her lily pad boat.

Six friends get together in a pub for some drinks. Each and everyone of them has a different job but the one thing they have in common is their daily torturing by their wives. Every chapter is a funny naration of the things that happen to them. Nick, lawyer, 43 years old. Peet, cop, 40 years old. Jim, pharmaceutical sales man, 50 years old. George, retired teacher, 70 years old. Chris, 27 years old mathematician. Mike, taxi driver 55 years old. A light comedy for all ages of how our lovely wives make our lives a cute nightmare. What kind of funny situations are our characters thrown into every day?

The plot focuses on the adventures of five Americans on an uncharted island in the South Pacific. During the American Civil War, five northern prisoners of war decide to escape, during the siege of Richmond, Virginia, by hijacking a balloon. The escapees are Cyrus Smith, a railroad engineer in the Union army (named Cyrus Harding in Kingston's version); his ex-slave and loyal follower Neb (short for Nebuchadnezzar); Bonadventure Pencroff, a sailor (who is addressed only by his surname. In Kingston's translation, he is named Pencroft); his protégé and adopted son Harbert Brown (called Herbert in some translations); and the journalist Gedéon Spilett (Gideon Spilett in English versions). The company is completed by Cyrus' dog "Top".

A couple walking and exploring a remote beach make a bizarre discovery that shakes their world. This story is a possibly chilling view of the future, a fresh look at the consequences of our attempts to avoid death.
