Wrote a small tale based on old stories of New England vampires (folks were pretty gullible back in the day), and the kind editors over at Ellipsis Zine gave it a home. Click on through to take a look.
Talking with animals
New story alert! I have a flash at the amazing WhiskeyPaper. It’s about getting lost in the woods. Immense gratitude to Leesa Cross-Smith for accepting the piece.
It’s such fun
I have two stories in the new issue of Hypertrophic Literary (a reprint of “Fatherwifehusband” and a new one, “The Word Hater Reads His Future”). You can buy a print or digital copy here. Many thanks to editors Maddie Anthes and Lynsey Morandin for their enthusiasm and help.
Also, the kind folks at The RS 500 let me write an essay about Lou Reed’s 1972 classic, Transformer. Of course, the essay is mostly about my first semester of college, but Lou Reed makes several appearances, too. (I promise!)
Stuff and Things
Two newish reviews are out in the world. At Kenyon Review Online, I wrote about Marcy Dermansky’s novel, The Red Car, and Numéro Cinq has my thoughts on Rodrigo Fresán’s The Invented Part. Both books are wild in their own ways.
That is all.
