BEDTIME STORIES is spoken microfiction based on stories told late at night by Aaron Kirby to his wife. A horse purchases a dozen antelope to work on his pine plantation, only to fall victim to their eldrich plans. A maths sorceress accidentally multiplies her dogs beyond all calculation. A bear cub on a quest for snacks has a terrifying encounter with the forest’s tax owls. Beginnings are made arbitrarily, stepping off a cliff to fall misty distances, only to catch on the wind of providence and soar to unexpected conclusions.
