Short Story Month: Earl Staggs proclaimed May International Short Story Month back in 2013. As the short story, in the mystery genre, is the reason why the Short Mystery Fiction Society exists, we join in the celebration each year. 

The SMFS spin on festivities is to highlight one or more members' online stories per day. Today, three time Derringer award winner Earl Staggs shares his 2004 Derringer Finalist short story, “Silky’s Getaway” archived at Kings River Life Magazine.

An amusing lighthearted tale. Liked the idea of Silky's grandma being an accomplished crook, too! Enjoyed.
