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.

I like genies and Christmas, sounds like a good book.
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! 🙂
Well done you.
It’s been slow here, but I have a number of things bubbling under. 🙂
Thanks! I had fun writing it, and I had even more fun reading the rest of the stories.
Let me know when things go from bubbling under to bubbling over, and I’ll plug your work on my blog! 🙂
