SMFS Member Publication News: Peter DiChellis

My crime-horror piece “Stegmann’s Basement” is free to read at Spelk Fiction.

Storyline: After a botched robbery a young criminal flees into a creepy basement.

For those not familiar with this market, Spelk is a popular U.K.-based site that accepts flash up to 500 words (all genres, literary). Non-paying, but seems to yield wide exposure, including via social media.
