“Mission Concept” was nominated by Flapperhouse for Sundress Publications’ 2017 Best of the Net. “Mission Concept” was originally published in Flapperhouse Issue #14. Flapperhouse’s other nominees are: Monica Lewis for her poem “artemis” and Deirdre Coyle for her short story “How to Vomit Living Creatures.

Huge thanks to Joe O’Brien, Stephen Langlois, and everyone at Flapperhouse for this honor. I’m truly humbled that my story stood out to you all enough to recommend it.
