Waiting food: A new story and a new review

You know that scene in Pulp Fiction, when John Travolta and Uma Thurman are at Jack Rabbit Slims, and Uma goes to the bathroom, only to come back and see that her food has arrived?


I’m kind of feeling like that right now. See, I spent a few days in Maine, away from technology (I’m not a cellphone guy, really, and had no internet connection), and now that I’m home, I find that I have two new publications out there in the big, wide world.


decomP magazinE was kind enough to run my micro-fiction piece, “Big Country,” in their August issue. You can read—or listen to—the story right here.

Also, my review of the short story collection War Stories just went live at Rain Taxi. Interested parties can find my thoughts by clicking here.

A review and an obituary walk into a bar …

My thoughts on the novel The Double Life of Alfred Buber appear in the latest print edition of Rain Taxi Review of Books. Click here to see the table of contents. You can also buy a copy.

Second, my good friend Sarah Braud just launched a strange little website called Roadkill Obituaries. Her husband Dave takes the pictures and the two of them imagine the life stories of various dead skunks and rabbits. I contributed a piece detailing the sad end of one Charles Opossum. Read all about Charles (assuming you’ve got a strong stomach) right here.
