Short Fiction

Volume Blog - Post

Ingleman kills penguins for God. They were a mistake, you see, in the first instance. God realises now just how stupid they look. He is embarrassed he ever created them, graceless waddling monsters that they are. So he and Ingleman spend their days driving from one zoo to another, gradually erasing the mistake. God drives and Ingleman does the killing.

My short story “Dumb Creatures” appears online on the Volume magazine blog. It is about an IT Technician who kills penguins. It was written during my time at Staffordshire University.
