New publication

I’ve been a huge fan of Eunoia Review for a long while now, and I’ve been honored to be among their contributors three times now, and they’ve been home to some of my favorite stories.

But it’s fairly difficult to do thatContinue reading “11-11: Literary magazine review (Annalemma)”

New publication

Good news!  It’s taken a while to get it online, but the new issue (Vol. VI) of Ampersand Review‘s online edition is out now, and it contains my story “Horror Vacui.”  Check it out. Actually, check out all of Ampersand — the review and the press — because they’re some of the coolest literary-minded peopleContinue reading “New publication”
