At Used Furniture Review (July 2011) – “Inferno” by Meg Tuite’s Exquisite Quartet … with Meg Tuite, Christopher Allen, Amber Sparks, and Sam Rasnake.

from “Inferno” …

The evacuation sirens and the perfume of charred juniper wafted up from the valley. The fires would rip through the matchbox suburbs of Santa Fe in an hour’s time. Pearl’s house was there. But was it worth going back for some family photos or a few books she hadn’t opened in ten years? Books. The library on the north edge of town was just three stories of tinder now. All those children’s picture books made in China would turn the air toxic blue for a month. She flicked her cigarette into the dry grass and climbed back into her car. She had a full tank, and she could live with the clothes on her back.

“Yeah,” she said. “I’m a believer.”
