Toasted Cake 246: How to Confront the Sphinx Haunting Your Garden by Alexei Collier

Toasted Cake 246! In which we contemplate the ineffable beauty of impermanent things.

If you are consulting this guide, you live alone in the house at the end of the lane, and a sphinx has been haunting your overgrown garden.

This story first appeared right here in Flash Fiction Online.

Alexei Collier was born in sunny Southern California, grew up in a house his family moved into on his very first Halloween, and went to school in a creepy old mansion. Many years later, powerful forces flung him deep into the heart of the Midwest, where he now lives across the street from Chicago with his wife and their cat. His short fiction has appeared in Flash Fiction Online, Cosmic Roots & Eldritch Shores, Cicada, and Ideomancer. You can find out more about Alexei at his oft-neglected website, alexeicollier.com.
