Tornado Gift

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
A short story, about 2000 words.

Strange is when a passing tornado drops an antique Westinghouse refrigerator in the backyard of your trailer.

Stranger still is what is inside when Dad opens it, and what the contents mean for two rambunctious boys who often pay too little attention to their surroundings.

About S. A. Barton

S.A. Barton lives in coastal Virginia with his wife, teen stepson, two under-5s, and demanding cat (as they all are). His path to the present was a strange, sometimes harrowing, and winding one; you may find this reflected in his writing. He has previously appeared in the pages of Penumbra magazine, in Daily Science Fiction, and in OMNI Reboot.

He's a winner of the first Amazing Stories Gernsback Writing Contest.

He is also proud to be a self-published indie author with dozens of short ebooks and collections to his credit, which may be found through He also tweets far too much as @Tao23.

While most of S.A. Barton's work is in science fiction, some of it strays into other genres such as fantasy, mainstream, alternate history and others -- like the cat, it wanders some.

Review by: Mary Blackwell on Sep. 20, 2015 :
This was a gripping short read. The build-up was gradual with the family painted so well with words that it was as if I was there. I was curious when they were, then perplexed, then watching the father run with amazement ... my heart hammering and then the last line.
