SHORT STORY REVIEW PAPER LANTERN BY STUART DYBEK

PAPER LANTERN BY STUART DYBEK – Scientists work together in their laboratory on a time machine. They decide to break for dinner and go to a Chinese restaurant. The only decoration was a red-ribbed paper lantern that spread its opaque glow across the steamy restaurant window. After the meal, they opened their fortune cookies. Returning to the laboratory, they saw the flames shooting up from the building and watched the fire. Dybek’s collected poems are Brass Knuckles and Streets in Their Own Ink.  His fiction includes Childhood and Other Neighborhoods, The Coast of Chicago, and I Sailed With Magellan.
