Big Lucks

Following a (seemingly) incredible long hiatus during which I was doing my first two years as a teacher, I am back! And just in time for the publication of one of my old stories, and one I’m particularly partial to, “Bud Powell, Composed in Four Elements”. It’s weird as hell and just posted at Big Lucks magazine. Hope you fine folks enjoy it. Here is a cool album cover, while you’re at it.

The Rotary Dial Issue 39

Hello old pals! It has been a long time since the last one of these. I am now a first-year English teacher and the publishing game has perceptibly slipped! Summer is coming soon, and I will be back on the horse. Here’s an oldish one that just came out in this month’s Rotary Dial. About Donald Rumsfeld. Kind of. You can get it here for a mere buck.

Also, as always, I love Canada. Thanks Canada

In other news: spring!

Qwerty Issue 31

This one’s a bit of a watershed moment for me. My first published piece of short fiction is out now in Qwerty, University of New Brunswick’s literary magazine (love you lots, Canada). It’s the Spring 2014 issue, a delayed announcement due to some issues they were having with their site. Subscribe to get at the goods.

The piece is called “Allegorien Deutschlands”. It’s not strictly a short story, but a series of six little scenes, each less than a thousand words, that illustrate some symbolic or emotional aspect of German culture or philosophy. They were written mainly as a personal exercise while I was learning German last year, but having floated them out to a few places for jollies, I heard back from Qwerty. Then I ran around the house shouting stuff for a bit. Anyway, still trucking more fiction pieces out to magazines, so perhaps there’ll be more announcements of this sort in the near future!

The Gap-Toothed Madness Vol. 2 Issue 1

A little mag I’ve been published in before, The Gap-Toothed Madness, decided to come back for another round! Issue 1 of Vol. 2 contains a narrative poem I wrote about a man driving up country to spend Christmas with his parents. It gets a little surreal at times. It even closes out the issue, which for some reason seemed important to me. Anyway, if all that sounds worthwhile, head over to the GTM store to pick up a copy. Winter is finally over guys. xxxx

Paper Nautilus

A poem I wrote in the Spring about seeing a big moon in some clouds is out now in this year’s edition of Paper Nautilus. Most importantly, check out the cover!
