David Bowie

A review of 2012 is over at Specusphere, and here is what is said about my piece, David Bowie:

Ben Peek's ‘David Bowie’ is, it seems, set in the here and now, but concerns the future (written in 2007, and riffing off the Bowie song 'Five Years' ... you do the maths). Framed as a conversation between friends or lovers, it's an exploration of reactions to the world's end. I'll confess that the story's format—unadorned dialogue, alternatively left- and right-justified on the page—was irritating at first, but it won me over. Peek cuts the concept pretty much to the bone; and who says there isn't space for character development within the confines of flash fiction?
