“Salt Feels No Pain”
She did not mourn the cities in their fates, for they were full of wicked men.
If you have a problem with alternate perspectives on Bible stories, you might want to skip this one. It’s a flash piece published in the thirteenth and final issue of Paradox Magazine.
“Salt Feels No Pain” by Marie Brennan is a flash fiction tale based on the Biblical account of Lot’s wife getting turned into a pillar of salt, but seen through the perspective of the wife. It’s short and very poignant, and as far from sweet as you can get. Overall, a wonderful tale.

I admire how Brennan is able to tell us such a perfect story, so succinctly.
