This summer there are a lot of books out there you should read. But if you’ve already got a full stack, I complied a list of books you really ought to read, but can’t and never will, because they’re fictional. That way, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the futility of knowing you will never pick up one of these legendary books.
This week’s post is a short story.
Flyway: A Journal of Writing & Environment has published one of my short stories, titled “Whatever Happened to Quill Gordon?”
You can read it here.
First publication of the new year!
Liminoid Magazine has published my piece of short fiction, “The Calvinist,” in their winter issue.
Read it for free here.
“If he runs, he ends, and if he ends he has ended. The other him is safe at home, his uniform is being washed, and he is complacent at the table, returning to the plate again and again and again. While the shirtless children chase the wingless birds that cannot fly.”
Teaching in public high schools, I am sometimes still surprised by the confusion some juniors and seniors may have concerning the terms “fiction” and “nonfiction.”
