Top of the World, Ma! (Or, at the very least, Top of the Page)

Book Review, Fiction, Interview

My time at Numéro Cinq stretches back close to three years now, which is kind of crazy, since I still feel like the new kid on the block. Anyway, I’ve hung around long enough that the powers that be (read: Doug Glover) decided to feature some of my writing in the “Top of the Page” slideshow accompanying this month’s issue. I’m super grateful for this, and I think DG chose some nice pieces to revisit. Click on through to read a little blurb about me, and visit the home page to see some of my older reviews, author interviews, and stories.

A piece of micro-fiction, plus a new review

Book Review, Fiction

Cheap Pop published my short story, “Hood Ornament,” earlier this week. It takes about a minute to read, so please find the time to give it a look, especially if you’re a fan of James Dean, car crashes, and locks of hair. You can find it by clicking here.

Also, over at Numéro Cinq, I review Granma Nineteen and the Soviet’s Secret, a really fun novel from Angolan writer Ondjaki. If you were a child of the 1980s, seek out this book. It reads like an adventure film from my youth, as a group of kids band together to take down the Soviets who threaten their beachside village. Here’s a link.
