Facestories by David Backer

Short stories crafted to deliver within the 420 characters of a facebook status box. Intriguing, opaque and cleverly crafter, just as a short short-story needs to be.

Instead of buying things Lou takes digital pics and prints them out and places them in the places where the things would go: pics of knives in the knife holder, pics of cups in cupboard, pics of garbage in the garbage can. Lying on the pic of her bed Lou pales and flattens, starving, and takes her own digital pic to print and put in her place.
