THE BARGAINS BELOW - Short Fiction by Dennis Lowery

The Bargains Below (FICTION: Escrire)


Laurie was new to town but not to shopping. She was the consummate bargain hunter and always scored big with sales savings. Then at a mall, she had one of those nightmare days that forever marks you. And nothing is ever the same again. A short story for the holiday shopping season.

A few early-reader (pre-publication) comments:

“Well written! The story flowed well and kept me eager to read on!” –Margaret Pypher

“Good lord I’m never shopping for bargains again!! Brilliant!” –Rea de Miranda

“Coooool. I lolled a few times too. Can’t wait to share.” –Nina Anthonijsz


PLEASE READ: This--below--is where intelligent comments are exchanged and threads of meaningful and thought-provoking discussion can take place. Some of my favorite stories I've written started with such exchanges and through them I've met some truly wonderful people. This comment section is a place where it's almost old-school in that responses--if one is needed--may not be immediate but will come. Kind of like postal mail correspondence, an easier pace that allows thoughtfulness and not knee-jerk fingers flying over keyboard replies, or something that comes out as top of mind, a stream of conscious superficiality. I hope to hear from and interact with you on anything I've written that sparks a thought or urge to comment.
