    Quirky & Quick!

    Josephine Fritzkiev was an exceptional laundress in Silver Lake, but one day in 2270 the entire population vaporized in a solar flare. Forever lost were Josephine’s laundering secrets, but sightings of her persisted. People went to Silver Lake to search for proof that she was still alive and to maybe discover her whitening secret, but they never returned. Avrid went to Silver Lake on a magazine assignment, determined to get to the bottom of the story of Josephine, but found more than he bargained for.

    This short story was a quick, delightfully weird read. Avrid’s experience at Silver Lake was surreal and the secret of how Josephine got everything so white…well, I won’t give that away. ;)
