Editor Katie Stevens has expended enormous effort in supervising a series of YA anthologies based on the seven deadly sins. The last installment in that series was just published. “Lust” is available on Amazon! I’m pleased and honored that my “Blue Magic Blues” was included among the other strong stories. Please take a peek! Both paperback and e-editions are available. Here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/Seven-Deadly-Sins-Anthology-Lust-ebook/dp/B07MFG6JP4/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1546910491&sr=8-12&keywords=lust+seven+deadly+sins&fbclid=IwAR3XOf8D4ErLKReHDmtUB8ceKRUajkiuXruXF5sgc7haYR-ete_OiGOiKcA
Lust is coming in the New Year. Wait for it!
The literary magazine Bartleby Snopes runs a short story contest every year that’s quite restrictive: no description and no exposition allowed. One must tell a tale using only dialog between characters. My entry is somewhat skewed toward an older demographic and I was laughing out loud as I wrote it. That’s not always a writer’s best guide to quality! “Do you feel lucky, punk” won 3rd prize, so please take a peek when you have time and let me know what you think..
Editor Jayne Jaudon included this poem in her excellent poetry blog and I thank her for the honor! Please follow the link to see if my words can aspire to accompanying Ed Haskell’s glowing photo.
I’m most pleased to announce that editor Neil Hogan included my “Starbuck Billy” in Issue 16 of Alien Dimensions. Previously published in Allegory e-zine, I was disappointed when it disappeared from the internet some years back. It’s now available in both print and electronic formats. I had a lot of fun writing it and I hope you’ll enjoy the deep space ride! Here are some helpful links:
In 2006, Phyllis, Jon and I journeyed to Turkey to visit Jeremy while he completed his doctoral research. We had many adventures, but none was more enjoyable than our walk through the Rose Valley. Editor Richard Loller has shared my journal entry about that walk on his Preservation Foundation site. Here’s the link: http://www.storyhouse.org/robertwa.html
