Halloween Nano Stories

End of World Problems
By Patrick Gorman

“How do I look?” A stupid question, I thought. Three years since the last human was eaten, and she still cared about such things.

  2. The boy had grown two inches in the last month. “I swear,” he moaned, “I’ll never steal again.” The old man gave a knowing nod as he bound the boy’s ankles to the rack one final time.
  3. It was 2 PM on a beautiful Saturday and Times Square was completely empty.
