In these ten stories—collected from the third year of Platypus Press’ Shorts digital fiction series—an author moves to rural France where she starts to question her own reality, a man is famous for nothing but his repetition, and, in a provincial college town, someone seeks the perfect place to bury their time capsule. At the forefront are people: their long-forgotten histories and their floundering steps into an unknowable future.

Featuring stories from: Vesna Main, Juliana Crespo, Sam Reese, Patricia Patterson, Prabda Yoon (tr. Mui Poopoksakul), Nicholas Russell, Yeji Ham, Chris Ames, Thisbe Nissen, and Claire Jimenez.

Anthology edited by Michelle Tudor.
