“The Roller Coaster” – Surreal Short Fiction, out via Litro

My surrealist short fiction piece – “The Roller Coaster” just came out today with Litro UK, in their lunch break fiction section.

It’s a small piece that’s pretty indebted to the style and trappings of Haruki Murakami’s short fiction, which I had read quite a bit of last year when I first wrote it.

In essence, a young man living in Montreal meets someone at university and they become very close. However, their relationship and his own perception of nothing short of reality come into question one afternoon when they visit LaRonde together.
