“It’s What’s Inside That Counts” published in Fantasy Magazine

My dark fantasy story It’s What’s Inside That Counts has been published in Issue #91 of Fantasy Magazine. It’s about a young girl who dissects a pig in science class, only to discover something unexpected inside.

I didn’t know how I’d react to the dissection. I couldn’t imagine poking around in a dead pig’s guts. I wondered how they would feel. Would they be squishy and warm, like spaghetti? Or cold and jiggly, like Jello? My stomach turned at the thought.

I was definitely gonna barf.
