The Black Spot
by William Mangieri
On a routine shift, one of the miners is exposed to something...different. The company doctor says it's just in his head, and he's right, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good thing. There may be a Workman's Comp claim here…
"The Black Spot" is a VERY short (570 word) speculative flash fiction, and is also in the collection "Still Even More Things I Could Get Out of My Mind."
