“Helium” in the new Synchronous issue of PacificREVIEW

by Jeff Fleischer

The new Synchronous issue of the annual PacificREVIEW from San Diego State University is out, and it includes my short story “Helium.” It’s also available to purchase.

An excerpt:

“They don’t do it anymore,” Lucy explained. “It was bad for the birds. They used to choke.”

“On the cards?” Abbi asked. She always had questions.

“On the balloons. They’d land somewhere in the middle of a field, or in a tree somewhere. They pop. Or the air goes out. Either way, birds could eat them and choke.”
