“Signature” in Mojave River Review

by Jeff Fleischer

Heading out of the country for a couple weeks shortly, but my short story “Signature” is out in the new edition of Mojave River Review.

An excerpt:


Though the letters had barely faded, Hal realized he was unable to determine the identity of the man behind the decades-old signature.


Since he and Alice had never gotten around to having children of their own, he didn’t have a baseball at the ready when his young nephew asked, mid-barbecue, if they could play catch. And since never having a family had also meant never buying a house large enough to accommodate one, they had also never gotten around to unpacking all of Hal’s old sports equipment, which remained stowed in cardboard boxes, the ones stacked up in the downstairs closet.
