Published in Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine, November/December 2013.
When a seemingly ordinary chair appears in the middle of a sidewalk, it sparks a new religion and hope of transcendence. A very short and simple story that paints a picture of what the world would be like if there existed a religious relic that actually did something. Not a story with any deep emotion or insight and not the type to linger after being read, but a decent read.
Favorite Line(s): “It has been said that every age gets the chair it deserves, and the history of chair culture is checkered at best.”
