“A Lesson for Ducklings” by Nicholas B. Morris looks into the brutal realities of nature.
Nicholas B. Morris grew up in Arkansas but fell in love with Colorado. His stories and other assorted writings have been published in The Harpoon Review, Cliterature, Connotation Press, Danse Macabre Online, and Nebo. He has published two short story collections, the full-length Tapeworm and the chapbook The Boy in the Well, both with the now sadly defunct Monkey Puzzle Press. (You can buy copies of Tapeworm from him directly on Amazon.) He works in his dream job as Assistant Professor of Humanities at the Community College of Denver and watches endless re-runs of Star Trek with his partner Alyssa Piccinni.

Caleb Hicks produced the original audio for the narrative. He and Mr. Morris worked closely together on the spoke album of Mr. Morris’s stories called The Boy in the Well.
