Abstract

Border Markers is a novel-in-flashes composed of thirty-three, inter-connected flash fiction stories set in Canada's only border city, Lloydminster. The flashes in this novel are complete stories, with a beginning, a middle and an end, each composed of under 1,000 words. Some of the themes explored in this novel-in-flashes include how communities create insiders and outsiders, and the different ways individuals and communities deal with guilt.
