Friday Short Fiction Club | Mime

Today I’ve read Mime by J.D. Brink. It was the cover, I saw it and had to read the story. There is something about a white-painted face that makes me think of painful, gory deaths and this story didn’t disappoint on that point. I haven’t read anything by J.D. Brink before but I enjoyed this little nugget. The ending might have been a bit rushed but this is flash fiction, you have to keep the word count down :).

Two mafia-employed men see a mime by their place late at night and think it’s strange he’s there. The mime swears he knows nothing and isn’t there to spy on them but the men don’t believe him. Things happen, then the bloody end comes, and you got to love a mime.

It doesn’t take more than a few minutes to read this story but I found it just right as a treat to go along with my morning coffee. It’s free so you have nothing to lose.


Book Cover Mime by J.D. BrinkCrime-noir meets ghost-horror in this flash fiction story. Mobster thugs Pauli and Mouse come across a street clown late at night who seems to know more than he’s telling; maybe too much. But you know the best thing about killing a mime? No one hears him scream. Then again, by the time this story is over, it won’t be him screaming.

This free short-short also includes an eerie new look at the author and a teaser sample from the up-coming book, A Long Walk Down a Dark Alley.
