Main Fiction: “The Language of Flowers” by Ian Creasey

This story originally appeared in Analog (May 2016)

Ian Creasey lives in Yorkshire, England. He has published seventy-odd short stories in magazines and anthologies.”The Language of
Flowers” originally appeared in Analog (May 2016).  “The Language of Flowers” is a sequel to “Ormonde and Chase”, which was podcasted on StarShipSofa in episode 533, April 2018.  But don’t worry if you didn’t catch the previous story, as this one does work as a standalone.

Narrated by: Matt Dovey

Matt Dovey is very tall and very English and most likely drinking a cup of tea right now. He has a scar on his arm that he can’t remember getting, but a terrible darkness floods his mind when he considers it. He now lives in a quiet market town in rural England with his wife and three children, and despite being a writer, he still hasn’t found the right words to properly express the delight and joy he finds in this wonderful arrangement.

His surname rhymes with “Dopey”, but any other similarities to the dwarf are purely coincidental. He is the Golden Pen winner for Writers of the Future Volume 32 (2016), was shortlisted for the James White Award in 2016, and has fiction out and forthcoming all over the place; you can keep up with it at mattdovey.com, or follow along on Facebook and Twitter.
