Strange Road

This is (or was) an exciting site that combined the ideals of Kerouac and Jim Morrison, among others and I was very happy to get my work published on this site. It has not been updated in a very long time and I fear it is now defunct/on indefinite hiatus. Strange Road published a number of my stories. Here are the links, of which I do not have the dates that they were published at this time:

February 2009-The Reason for Living

A Strange Enough Ending

Bartelby Snopes

Bartelby Snopes published A Sure Thing, a horse racing story and Reflections in the Looking Glass, a story of a young girl in Mexico contemplating fate, a Gabriel Garcia Marquez-inspired story. A Sure Thing won the first ever Story of the Month at Bartleby Snopes, of which I was quite honored. It was also nominated for a 2008 storySouth Million Writers Award.

A Sure Thing, published July 2008.

Reflections in the Looking Glass, published in August 2008, I believe.

Writing Raw

Writing Raw is a very cool/edgy on-line literary review that is friendly to writers. The editors there are open to new writers and stories. Highly recommended. They were generous enough to publish three of my stories and do an interview with me that I will have to locate and add onto this blog.

The Out-Patient, published 6/30/09
Lament, published 7/15/2009
Tools of the Trade, published 8/10/09

White Horse Tavern

Me outside my old haunt-writing and otherwise, 567 Hudson Street, the White Horse Tavern one winter night, 2008. I wrote many stories at those wooden tables seen here. I wrote a bulk of the story, Conversation at a Cafe' outside here one fall afternoon and came back the next day or so and finished it as the light faded from the trees and the buildings across the street. The photo is blurry but I like the colorful neon effect.

Rob McEvily, editor of Six Sentences met me there there for an interview. Here is a photo taken that night.

Below is the link for an interview with Rob at the White Horse Tavern on December 16, 2008. A great literary night.

Absent Willow Review Anthology

Absent Willow Review had an anthology come out on October 31, 2009 and featured my story, Reclamation. The editor is very writer-friendly and also asked me to help pick out some stories that I thought should be included in the anthology, which I thought was very generous of him.

Vicious Verses and Reanimated Rhymes

Published August 1, 2009, this collection featured my poem 5 Dark Ravens as well as two poems by The Master of the Macabre, Adam J. Whitlatch, Esurient & Kismet.
