Wilbur is an unassuming little man living an unassuming little life. He and his wife have a stereotypical 1950s existence, but in modern America. One day, he arrives home to discover a mysterious crate. His attempts to deal with a seemingly minor mistake lead to an escalating series of absurdities, straining his marriage, leaving the couple's lives in tatters, and leading him to question his place in the world. Do millions perish? Does the world end? Does Wilbur figure out how to make photocopies? The Delivery is what happens when Kafka meets Monty Python.

About the Author

K.M. Halpern was born in New York and, after spending far too much time there, finally returned to the Cambridge, MA he knew and loved from graduate school. Unfortunately, all that remained was a large Starbucks, several thousand bank branches, and two small universities whose names he forgets. His current literary projects include a fantasy series about an indestructible woman, an upcoming book of pretentious and largely dystopian short stories, and a fourth collection of flash fiction. K.M. holds a PhD in theoretical physics from a cluster of concrete buildings somewhere on the Charles River. He may be found at or generating very small gravitational waves around town.
