A Pocketknife and a Really Big Fish

September Publication Updates:

My short story, "Reciprocity", is up at The Battered Suitcase. It's a strange little jaunt about a boy finding himself and then finding himself underwater, drowning in a car. I played around with the chronology of events a bit in this one. I guess I'd have to call it magical realism...I guess.

In addition, "Scott Sullivan's Pocketknife", definitely my most realistic (and semi-autobiographical) story, is out in the inaugural issue of Soundings Review. Copies can be ordered via their website.

Enough shameless self-promotion...
