@KatyElphinstone Hi! Oh yes, Ralph's story appeared in the winter issue, so there's no direct link anymore, but you can still access it if you go to the "downloads" section of the site! (granfalloon.org/downloads) and click on the winter issue. Ralph's story is on page 64. Enjoy! :)

We're baaaack! The Spring 2022 issue of Granfalloon is now available at granfalloon.org! Pictured here is one of our valued contributors, Robert Pope, showing off his copy of the zine! Be sure to check out his highly entertaining sci-fi Western "Miss Kitty and the Creature with Many Legs" (bit.ly/3k8buRF) featured in the spring issue along with many other fantastic works of speculative fiction & poetry!

Wishing everyone a very happy new year and lots of success in 2022! πŸŽ‰ πŸ₯³ πŸ₯‚

@human_dude Sorry, ran out of space, but I would put Stalker (1979) at the top of the list -- of all dystopian/sci-fi films -- if you haven't seen it, it's magnificent! And I think it meets your criteria; it is filmed in a realistic documentary style... (youtube.com/watch?v=YuOnfQd-aT)

Would definitely second Chris Marker's "Le JetΓ©e." The French film "Le Dernier Combat" may also qualify (youtube.com/watch?v=bRWN_QtzBL). Not sure if this qualifies, but there is an interesting Czech film form the '60s called "Cybernetic Grandma" which uses stop motion photography combined with old photographs and surreal scapes (youtube.com/watch?v=C5kdV0sQTq). You may also find Lucas's first film THX 1138 interesting -- it's kind of filmed in a documentary style (youtube.com/watch?v=eHgqfVQWv7)

The tiny dragon frolicked among the snails, a joyous glittering shoelace with wings and horns.

I watched patiently for about an hour before asking, "Are you going to eat them or not?"

"Eat? Oh no, I collect them!"

"Then when are you taking them away?"

The dragon looked around, "When they're all in one container I guess?"

I sighed; I should have expected this when I wished the snails away from my garden at the budget wishing well...
