On "In Thirty Minutes or It’s Free" by John Minichillo (1479 words) ***

Something about the mundanity of delivering pizza appeals to me in a story. As I recall, it was the subject of Tao Lin's first novel, and here it is again as a focus of Minichillo's wonderful short story. Cliff and Wendy are watching a movie, but the pizza they've ordered is late. They're a little irritated. Calls to the chain restaurant keep eliciting an "It's coming" response. But something wicked is working that neither Cliff nor Wendy know about, and it'll change just what this pizza means to them. Read the story here at Frigg.
