All Mod Cons – David Gaffney

Busy day today so cheated a little and read a piece of flash from the Aromabingo collection I have been dipping in and out of over the last two weeks. All Mod Cons is very short but very sweet. A prime example of the highly inventive yet simple premise necessary for flash fiction. The central conceit of this story, a myopic man who makes himself a prescription windscreen is so good I wish I had thought of it.
