“The Lock”

June 8th, 2013 · No Comments

Another story of mine that was published three months ago (in addition to “Extinguisher”) was “The Lock.”  It’s posted this morning to the “Previously Published Stories” sidebar. “The Lock” was published in NOON and was phenomenally edited by Diane Williams, who runs that magazine.  The original version, though it was not long, was about five […]

June 3rd, 2013 · 2 Comments

Two new pieces are posted this morning in the “Previously Published Stories” sidebar.  Last year the editors at Salt Hill contacted writers who had previously had work published in the magazine–mine was “Tossing Baby to the Tiger,” published in Salt Hill 14–and asked us if we would submit new work to be considered for their […]

April 28th, 2013 · 4 Comments

Litro, A Little London Literary Magazine published my story, “Lost Things and Missing Persons,” today in their Story Sunday.  You can find it here if you like: http://www.litro.co.uk/ The editors changed a couple spellings to reflect British spelling.  They also incited me to tighten up the ending of the story.  Endings are probably my weakest […]

Gnats

There is a new story posted in the “Previously Published Stories” sidebar, or menu, or whatsit.  It is called “Gnats” and it was first published three months ago in Snow Monkey. While we’re on the subject, I’ve recently had stories accepted by Fox Chase Review, Noon, and Mayday Magazine.  They should all be appearing over […]

A new story is posted

“Lawn” is the only story I had published in 2011.  It appeared in Thema in the autumn.  I have posted it today to this site, over to your right, in the “Previously Published Stories” menu, at the top and out of alphabetical order.  At some future point I’ll probably nudge it down a few notches […]

“The Usual Story” is another of the stories I initially wrote about a dozen years ago and which was published early this year in Mad Hatters’ Review.  It’s the last previously-published story I have in my inventory.  Next week I’ll have to post something else.  Probably poetry.  There was a call some weeks back from […]

Hurtled screaming into the void

August 27th, 2011 · No Comments

The voice in “the talking french cat” came to me in a dream.  I thought of writing an entire book in that voice, but I couldn’t sustain it, then it was gone.  And would a reader really want to spend an entire book, even a slim volume, with that person and that voice?  Madness and […]

Such a pretty face should be dressed in lace

August 20th, 2011 · 2 Comments

Very few of the stories I’ve had published have undergone no substantial rewrite, “substantial” being a subjective term that, whatever it may mean, almost certainly means more than giving a story a “polish” (whatever that may mean).  “Rag Doll” was first drafted about fifteen years before I finally got it into a shape a publisher […]

Epistemology

“Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Pickles and Fries” is the result of taking a handful of ideas languishing in the workshop, mixing them together to see how they might fit, and making a prose bracelet out of them.  It was published in The Writing Disorder on New Year’s Eve last year.

Touch-up paints are available in most common colors

Usually, once I’ve published a piece, I make no more modifications to it.  This is a rule I abide by strictly except for those occasions when I choose to break it. This week I’m posting “Karen and the Dropout,” a story published in 2010 in White Whale Review.  Prior to publication, Randi Shapiro, the fiction […]

Goes well with a salad

July 30th, 2011 · No Comments

“Casserole Man” was a story I wrote in the mid-90s.  It took me the rest of that decade to get it right, and once I had, it was published in the now-defunct Chiron Review.  That would have been around the same time (spring of 2002) I met the woman I’m now married to–or, to whom […]

The three-and-a-half-inch floppy

July 16th, 2011 · 2 Comments

This week I’m posting “Saved” to the Stories menu of this blog.  It’s a story I wrote in the late 90s and was never quite happy with.  I wrote it in first-person and sent it out, it got rejected, that’s okay, I rewrote it in third-person.  I sent it out in third-person, it got rejected, […]

When we were happy, when we were young

July 9th, 2011 · No Comments

There was a literary magazine called Happy.  I can find no evidence it still exists as an active endeavor.  When it did, it published one of my very short stories from the late 90s, called “Shelving.”  That’s the story I posted this week. Share this…FacebookPinterestTwitterLinkedinemailPrint
