Solarcidal Tendencies

This anthology contains my short story “‘Burgatory” originally published at Solarcide a few years ago, but which has been offline for a while. It’s about a life-insurance salesman facing his mortality as planes of the multiverse collide. From the publisher: Visions, plagues, angels. A different view of the miracle of birth. Bestiality farms, departing souls, […]

Submission Windows released!

Prison bars. Stained church glass. Deadlines precursing rejection. These are Submission Windows: vantage points for peeking in on—or out from—surgeons, killers, priests, perverts, inmates, athletes, musicians, and more than a few celebrities past their prime. Most clinging to frayed ropes of their own making, desperate for redemption, love, or merely an enduring pulse. For others, […]

The Tobacco-Stained Sky

A couple of years ago, I read Andrez Bergen’s excellent post-apocalyptic sci-noir novel Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat, and began a correspondence with the author, interviewing him for The Velvet and keeping in touch all friendly-like, as we do. A few books later, he re-approached Goat‘s publisher, Another Sky Press, about releasing an anthology of stories by […]

The Booked. Anthology

First of all, if you’ve never listened to Booked. Podcast before, I’ll wait while you get clicky and download some eps. Or stream it—whatever—just get it in you by any means. Odds are good they’ve reviewed something you’re thinking about reading, or talked to your favorite authors, and dropped some knowledge and smack and hilarity. […]

“Ephemeralia” at Black Heart Magazine

Got a new (flash fiction) short story for you, called “Ephemeralia,” which Black Heart Magazine deemed fit for publication. Stick around and read some other tales of literary rebellion while you’re there. [Note: the site is assuredly not porn, though it may get filtered as NSFW.] I used to get ethereal and ephemeral mixed up. […]

“Speed Ramp” story at Word Riot

The February 2013 issue of Word Riot features my flash-fiction* story “Speed Ramp,” about a homeless Indian boy with a flanging disorder, wherein his perception of time speeds and slows. It was partly inspired by the music video for “Guttersnipe” by Bhi Bhiman (below), which you may as well peep first—don’t worry, no spoilers there. […]

“Shivaree” story at ManArchy

Just in time for Halloween, ManArchy staff authors contributed a week’s worth of quick scary/spooky stories to set the mood and prickle your nape hairs in this witching season. Mine’s called “Shivaree” and warns about getting nosy with some noisy neighbors. Look for other flash-length frights from Richard Thomas, Chris Deal, Bob Pastorella, Michael Paul […]

Noir at the Bar Vol. 2

My short story, “Untitled Stephenie Meyer Novel” (originally published in the Oprah Read This project) has found a new home in Noir at the Bar Vol. 2, an anthology available in paperback exclusively from Subterranean Books. “Stephenie” is a newly-revised version of my disturbing little tale about the aphrodisiac qualities of unreleased Twilight material in […]

Books and Booze interview

Combining two of my favorite things into one of my favorite new podcasts. Sensing that some of their former guests (though entertaining and knowledgeable) had been far too sober given its namesake, for my appearance this week, I took it upon myself to lower my inhibitions, articulation, grammatical skill, and possibly good judgment by way […]

“‘Burgatory” story at Solarcide

“No matter where you live in New York City, you always end up in Queens.” Opening lines always shoulder a lot of weight (and disproportionate thought). This one I pocketed from a pilot announcement as we were descending into LaGuardia, cemetery plots dominating the landscape out my window. Which later inspired the concept of a […]
