Rose stares at her weathered reflection in the dusty shop window. She wonders if Frankie would even recognize her anymore. She hopes he’s in a place that will keep him warm. To the left of her face, an unattended hot air balloon appears on the reflection, shining like a rainbow on a foggy day. She turns around, crosses the dewy green grass, and decides to hop into the balloon’s gondola."

Tiny Universes is the debut chapbook of Hawaii-born author Zach Murphy.

In this poetic flash-fiction collection of sixteen short stories, Zach explores memorable moments both magical and mundane through his diverse cast of characters. Delving deep into their innermost reflections, Tiny Universes offers glimpses into the characters' feelings of loss, hope and metamorphosis.


Note: We are aware of the missing 'S' on the cover, this was a error we did not pick up until the books were printed. The cover was adjusted by us for printing purposes and somewhere along the way the 'S' was removed. We have put in another reprint, but this is why this book is 50% discounted.
