Hi. Can, every one, give me an example of finite surjective morphism of finite tor dimension (but not flat!) between reduced schemes or complex analytic spaces... Thank you.

Consider a smooth surface $Y$ with a point $p\in Y$. Let $X$ be obtained by gluing two copies of $Y$ at $p$, with the obvious morphism $X \to Y$. This is surjective and finite, and has finite Tordimension (because $Y$ is regular, hence every morphism to $Y$ has finite Tor dimension). However, it is not flat (for example, because $X$ is not CohenMacaulay).
