Anything you dream is fiction,
and anything you accomplish is science,
the whole history of mankind is nothing but science fiction.

Science Fictional – A Journal of Science Fiction

My brother had to clean out the back yard. The town has told him that he had to get rid of the old Chevies and his lawn mower collection. He rented a dumpster and started cleaning out the barn so he could store some of his treasures. He dumped piles of stuff including a wonderful collection of vinyl records that he had found at the side of the road.

I went through the records and found a cool Captain Beefheart album, The Spotlight Kid. One of the songs is a psychedelic blues/rock song called “Grow Fins” about a man who meets a mermaid and wants to grow fins so he can be with her.

The song gave me the title for the latest story that I ghosted over at Sciencefictional.com. It’s a flash piece called “Grow Fins”.
