My Story!

My story, Masquerade at Well Country Camp is up! Drop by and take a look. Then come back here and tell me what you think! It's based on a photo I found in a book I got for Christmas.

Be sure to read the other fine stories at Flash Fiction Online. They're a really professional group of folks over there and would appreciate comments in their forum, a few dollars in their kitty (if you've got 'em) and your best flash fiction submissions. They're a paying market, so if you've written something good, don't be shy!

"Masquerade..." captures the mysterious memories of "Well Country Camp", remnants of which waft through the shadows even today. I'm the oldest (in chronological age - 74) resident of what once was "Well Country Camp," after being founded as Camp KillGloom in the first decade of the 20th century, the first TB recovery camp on the east side of the Sandia Mountains, and the first Anglo residents there.

Once TB was curable (c. 1943) Well Country Camp became Pauly's Ranch, then in 1950 Hobbies NM (current population on 45 acres = 9).

We all are drinking spring water which has been free flowing continuously since Coronado visited c. 1540.

Coming to the story with only my experience of reading your other work had me looking for the distopian elements. There was a lot of distopia in those camps.
