'Puerto Peñasco' - A short story by Hosho McCreesh

#4
We have these creatures known locally as suicide beetles which come up from the drains with the first rain of the new season. Well, after 140 days without rain, they finally appeared after some showers last week. They fly up into the air, fall to the ground, and soon after they die. A life spent literally in the shit and then a brief gasp in the warm sun and then death. Oh, and another thing, it became so hot here that the rollers on my press melted and got stuck to the platen plate. I had to start keeping them in the fridge. None of these things have relevance in the end, but somehow it seems that they might. Books ship Tuesday for those kind enough to have parted with cash. Thanks
