The last of our prophecy stories titled, fittingly enough, "The Prophecy," is by author Andrew Butters who also has a brand new non-fiction book releasing on April first. Give this rather satirical sudden fiction a listen.

Andrew Butters is a married father of two living in New Brunswick, Canada and he will tell you that his first published work was Losing Vern as part of the Orange Karen: A Tribute to a Warrior anthology. In reality, it was a 500-word anecdote about the time he lit himself on fire. That story made it into the third installment of the Darwin Awards books. He writes, creates, eats snacks, blogs, toils over his next novel, creates videos, is a huge fan of golf, hockey, science, EQUALITY, and the Oxford comma. Andrew sometimes lets his love of attention override common sense. You can find evidence of this pretty much anywhere you can find Andrew.
