My story “Transmogrify” is in Terror Scribes, a collection of stories from Dog Horn Publishing. Love that cover art. And if you’ve read any of their previous collections, novels, or magazines, you know that DHP does great work.
My review of Wild (Knopf) by Cheryl Strayed is now live at The Nervous Breakdown. This is a fantastic memoir, one that takes out into the wilderness, so that we can hear the song and pain that emanates from her broken heart. A mother that dies too soon, a life that is falling apart, and one hell of a long trail to hike. The old Boy Scout in me loved the outdoors, and the poet that lives in a little chamber of my chest sat with her observations and listened to them hum.
