Oh yes….it is time again for another episode of In Between Altered States where we try to string together 8 pieces of flash fiction into a twisted dream. Each story is loosely themed for a bit of cohesiveness though each writer gets to take the theme to the far reaches of their minds. This episodes theme is “cleaned out”. Come take a little trip with us on what that means. I would like to welcome back writers Ben Pullar and Kevin Ridgeway and give a barbaric yawp for the newcomers to IBAS: RL Raymond, Frankie Metro, Paul Tristram, Kyle Hemmings, Craig Scott, and Gertrud Pehk. As always, please read the stories from start to finish for the fullest effect and then go back and read your favorites again. Enjoy!
