  1. Drabblecast #297 – “The Apothecary’s Apprentice”

    In the back of the shop I scrubbed three large cauldrons clean,
    stripping the seasoning from them because Master Aloz insisted on it
    once the trade caravans stopped coming at the end of summer. Tallow,
    he called me, on account of my paleness. I used a brush made of iron
    bristles instead of horse hair, scraping away the brown muck inside,
    various plant and animal parts rendered into sludge like droppings
    from a sick bull. My book lay on the floor beside the cauldrons. Sir
    Tannis and the Hydra. It seemed I wouldn’t get to read much of it
    today. Even after these cauldrons were clean I’d still be scrubbing,
    staged back here so when Master Aloz got some stragglers looking for
    cure-alls he could show them how busy the shop was, tempting them to
    buy what they could for surely the stock would not last.

    – Craig Lincoln

  2. Daily Science Fiction has flash fiction from David D. Levine

    I can’t take my eyes off the customer’s back as he approaches my gallery. My emotions are strong and mixed: satisfaction, a sense of completion, a little sadness. I hope he is happy with the painting he is bringing me.
