Book Review Essay Fiction Interview

2018, Condensed

The year is over (pretty much), so (bowing to peer pressure) here’s everything I put out in the world during 2018:

I published the following stories, most of which are quite small:

“The Wherewithal” at Monkeybicycle 

“Creatures of Love” at Last Exit

“Old Friends” at Last Exit

“Everyone Needs a Kind Stranger to Listen to His Secrets” at Last Exit

“Parental Concerns” at Bending Genres

“Half Tank” at Atticus Review (nominated for Best Microfictions 2018 and Best Small Fictions 2019)

“Living Our Best Lives” at jmww

Though I anonymously reviewed 20(ish) books for PW, I also wrote some longer takes for these fine outlets:

“Love Is a Powerful Drug: On Tomb Song by Julián Herbert” (Kenyon Review Online, Nov. 2018)

“Review of The Concrete by Daniel Abbott” (Rain Taxi Review of Books, Issue 91, Sept. 2018)

“Hollywood Babylon: A Review of Ross McMeekin’s The Hummingbirds (Vol. 1 Brooklyn, June 2018)

“I’m So Free: On A Working Woman by Elvira Navarro” (Kenyon Review Online, March 2018)

“On Tatiana Ryckman’s I Don’t Think of You (Until I Do) (Alternating Current’s The Coil, March 2018)

I got to interview my buddy Donald Quist about his new story collection:

“Living as Lion and Hunter: An Interview with Donald Quist” (Fiction Writers Review, Oct. 2018)

And lastly, three of my short essays appeared in the collection Miscellany, from Run Amok Books:
