A short little piece about…well, at less than a thousand words, I’ll let the reader decide what it’s about.  Perhaps appropriately, Every Day Fiction published this one the day after Valentine’s Day.

THE MEMORY OF ROSES • by David Parish-Whittaker | Every Day Fiction – The once a day flash fiction magazine.



Hey all, I’ve released my story A Warbird in the Belly of the Mouse in e-format.  This is the first time it’s been available in electronic format, and will be free on Smashwords for the week or so (Amazon may or may not price match)


A winner of the Writers of the Future contest in 2007, Warbird follows Nigel, a World War One fighter pilot who has been “time plucked” into the 21st century in order to work as a guide for a reality show about Great War air combat.  Nigel has to contend with his feelings about the war, as well as the 21st century tourists he shepherds, each with their own reasons for being there.
“A nice tale about pride, honor and duty.”  –Diabolical Plots
Originally released as part of the Writers of the Future XXIV anthology, Warbird is available here for the first time in electronic format.
