The World is Bigger than an Ell
by Phil Strobe
Darrin develops a condition where he no longer sees things, but the shaped descriptions of things in this short story (approximately 3400 words). He suffers loss, and confusion, copes with love and family, and looks deep. This edition also contains two bonus items, "Because Love Resists Narrative," a villanelle, and "Meet Ashley's Neighbor," a short-short episode in a serial character sketch.
