No obsession is bigger than an unanswered question

There are stories that are like a curse. Stories you care about so much that you can’t let them go.

I once wrote one of these stories, and it’s been locked in a drawer for years. Then I decided to include it in a short story collection, but it turned out to be a disaster. I tried to forget it and I thought I had. But I was wrong, of course. So, a few months ago, I completely revised it to a brand-new version and submitted it to literary magazines.

Long story short, today it’s up at Fiction on the Web. And I thank Charlie Fish and Rick Taliaferro for giving it a chance.

It’s titled “Thus the Circle Closes”.

The strange and dark and beautiful

When Phil Slattery replied to my submission, saying that all three of my flash fiction stories had been accepted for the August issue, I couldn’t believe it. I wrote these pieces over twenty years ago, and it’s great to find out they still have something to say today.

I’m happy and honored to announce that “When Angels Die”, “Never Meet Your Hero”, and “The Lament” have been published in The Chamber Magazine, home for the strange and dark and beautiful.

Thank you so much, Phil.

What is your greatest fear?

Honored to announce that “There’s Someone at the Door” has been published in The Closed Eye Open Issue VIII.

Thanks to Daniel Morgan, Maya Highland, and Aaron Lelito for accepting this little piece of mine.

The full issue is available for online viewing at the following LINK, if you want to take a look.

This is its first appearance ever. It was written for a contest at Breve Storia Felice, but I didn’t submit it. Now it’s time to let it go.
