Short Story Review: "What is your Emergency?" by Chris Rhatigan

Lynn is sick of students, sick of grading papers written by students who can’t write a coherent sentence, and in general the educational establishment as a whole and their next big thing. She has five more papers to go and she can finally go home.

That is until the sound of what must have been gunfire rattles the old building.

This fast moving tale at Grift Magazine is a good one that is also rather disturbing. The tale walks a fine line between reality and the surreal. That leaves the piece open to reader interpretation. The result is a twisted good read.
