“The Paper Cut” reprinted in Zoetic Press

by Jeff Fleischer

My short story “The Paper Cut,” originally published in Jet Fuel Review back in 2016, is now published in print for the first time, as part of the Epic Fail issue of Zoetic Press Nonbinary Review.

An excerpt:

Stupid paper cuts.

There aren’t many things more infuriating than a deep paper cut. An infinitesimal fragment of a second earlier, your finger feels absolutely normal, and then there’s that sudden, stinging, sharp pain that feels like it will never go away. The blood starts seeping out instantly. Before you even realize you’ve been cut, there’s bright red fluid all over your finger, usually getting on the rest of your hand.
