Lockerbie Thoroughbred by Phillip Sterling

Phillip Sterling thinks of his writing as playing golf in a cemetery, despite the sign above his desk that pleads otherwise.  He’s known to be contrary in that way.  The sign is legitimate, removed from a chain link fence decades ago, ages before Sterling’s two-year stint as a union gravedigger.  His collection of short fiction, In Which Brief Stories Are Told, is rife with irony and understatement.

One thought on “Lockerbie Thoroughbred by Phillip Sterling

  1. Excellent. I read it once and then read it again with the emotion sinking it. Interesting combo of horses and planes…I never would have thought of this twist.
