10/17/2011 Update: This story is now collected in the first issue of the Stories in the Ether anthology, now available for your Kindle.

3/31/2011 Update: The revised draft is up a day early and it’s got a great little illustration to go along with it. Go read it!

3/22/2011 Update: I have written a revised draft of Mottephobia for the Nevermet Press anthology “Stories in the Ether, Volume 1”. It will be available on the web on April 1st (no joke) and collected in their print/e-book/audio anthology in early 2012. Consider this a first draft. I will replace this version with the updated one some time in April.

Chuck Wendig suggested a flash fiction challenge of 1,000 words or less, inspired by the title of his short story collection,”Irregular Creatures”.

Entry removed.

  1. Nice! I love stories where the characters change; I have played around with this theme too. My favorite lines in the story?

    “He suggested a treatment of systematic desensitization. I suggested that he was a quack.”

    Laughed my ass off. Nice work.

    • Thanks! Glad you liked it. It was fun to write something quick and put it up on the web and get that instant feedback. Always takes forever to get responses when you’re submitting.
