Edward Mullany

He found a transistor radio washed up on the beach and showed it to her, because she was interested in those things; not transistor radios in general, but items that were thrown away or lost. "See if it works," she said. He already knew it didn't work, because he'd tried it when he'd found it, before he'd shown it to her, but he tried it again anyway, knowing that when it still didn't work she'd at least have witnessed him doing what she thought he needed to do.

Edward Mullany's fiction has appeared in or is forthcoming from Alaska Quarterly Review, New Ohio Review, Hobart, Word Riot and others.
