My review of 11/22/63 is now live at LitReactor and I think it’s Stephen King’s best book in awhile. You don’t have to be a fan of JFK and/or conspiracy theories in order to dig this book. And the time travel aspects are certainly a part of this story, but really, it’s the way that King creates the communities that he builds, develops his characters, and shows us how our decisions effect our futures (and the futures of those around us) that make this his best book in a long time.

My story “Twenty Reasons to Stay and One to Leave” is now LIVE at Metazen. I really like what these guys are doing. They publish one new story a day, and on Friday, August 5th, I was up. Great group of writers publishing here, honored to be a part of it. This story was a bit different than what I usually do, built on on idea, one phrase that starts off “Because…” which in my head, was the voice of the protagonist answering the accusations towards him: “Why do you stay with her?” or “Why don’t you leave?” or “Why is she so screwed up?” or “Why do you still help her?”
