'Old Stories in Modern Times' by Jinny Alexander


The storm swept fiercely through Kansas, uprooting trees and sending people scurrying to their basements. Being hurricane country, and well-used to inclement weather, the houses were strongly built with solid foundations. Cellars were well-stocked with tinned goods and calor-gas cookers; generators stood ready in dim corners. Dorothy settled herself down into a comfy old armchair, Toto curled on her lap.

‘Make popcorn, please, Aunty Em,’ she called. ‘I’ll get Netflix started up.’
