The First Line is an awesome publication because their premises create dozens of stories that writers may not have known they had in them. The First Line releases an unalterable first line for a short story quarterly and welcomes unsolicited submissions that contain said line.
The anthologies they release include story submissions they loved that contained the required first line.
"Nobody's Life" is featured in their latest anthology about Captain Eli P. Cooke, who makes an awful mistake that gets the latest round of stories started in mishap and bad fortune.
