Return of the Wee Folk

by Maggie Ryan Sandford

It started to go bad when someone brought up leprechauns.  The scary kind, like from the movieLeprechaun, and Leprechauns 2 and 3, and Leprechaun 4: Leprechaun in Space, Leprechaun: In Da Hood, and Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood. It must have been Stickney that brought it up.  His real name is Alex, but Stickney was his road name; we’d seen it on a highway sign somewhere in Illinois, and like an edict from God, Stickney he was called, because he was tricky and sneaky and liked to puncture things by sticking his little pin-like canines in them:  aluminum cans, non-dairy creamers. Cara was Luverne at first, then Spearfish, then Rimrock.  I was Aberdeen.

Read the rest of the story!

Next week we’ll here from the excellent novelist David Oppegaard.
