Merry freakin’ Christmas (don’t worry, we do Thanksgiving and New Year’s, too)

It’s been a good week for publications. On Monday, my story “Barefoot in the Guadalupe” appeared in Red Dirt Review, and the same day I got word that I’ll have a story in Scintilla sometime in the future. Then today, Jersey Devil Press‘s special Holiday Half-Issue my colleagues and I have been working on turned up online. And it is (in)glorious. Seriously: besides my story ripping apart Santa Claus and stitching him back together again (literally), the issue contains a delightful New Year’s story about obnoxious family and a magic genie hiding in a bottle of root beer, and two — count them! two! — stories about vengeful turkeys.

It is awesome.

Check out the issue online now. Because we need some new holiday bedtime stories.

    1. I’m pretty proud of it, though publisher Eirik Gumeny did all the hard work, I think.

      My story’s a touch bleaker than the others, but the others are hilarious. It’s a great read all around, I think! And it’s free, which is the best gift of all. Hope you enjoy reading the issue! 🙂
