Originally published in Haunted Magazine, my Poe-ish mystery story “A Letter to Anna Bell,” has been accepted for the Graveyard Anthology to be published later tGraveyard 3his year. Haunted ceased publication shortly after my story ran (no, I don’t think there was a connection) and their archives are no longer available, so the anthology will be a re-birth of sorts for “Anna Bell.” Looking forward to seeing it in print again! I’ll post another notice when the anthology is available.

“SanShadowgraph logodman” grew out of a challenge my writing partner and I took up: to write a complete story consisting of one sentence. In the beginning it was just an exercise, a prompt; but I found that the piece that emerged was seductive in its relative simplicity and brevity. The format seemed perfect for a dream-like meditation that, to some, may seem more poetry than prose.Wings-chart

The story touches on mystery, mortality,  belief, and sexual desire; it was inspired by a week spent on Cape Cod in October, 2015 and is published this month in Shadowgraff Quarterly. Click to read “Sandman.”

(By the way, Alice and I both cheated a bit on the one-sentence rule: my story is in three sentences, hers is in two. Read Alice’s piece, “Quickly”  in the May 2015 issue of Labletter.)
