I wish I can remember who said it this way: "A short story is about a murder. A novel is about the murderer."
So I've got some shorties coming out in these next couple months. "The Lonesome Defeat of Bridge-Repair" will be included in the gargantuan Burning Love and Bleeding Hearts Anthology (Things In The Well, Australia) to be released on Valentine's Day. Also from Australia, Black Hare Press will be releasing their Twenty-Twenty Anthology which will include my noir "Straight To The Bone" which concerns four rivaling men's hygiene business moguls. And hopefully not last, my story "Wrath Child's Atrophy" will be appearing in "Little Boy Lost: More Tales of Youth Disrupted" (Mannison Press, Florida). WCA is sort of like Stand By Me but with heavy metal kids.
