A huge thanks goes out to Juli Min, editor-in-chief of The Shanghai Literary Review, for her patience and care in accepting and editing the story.
Jennifer Pashley, author of The Scamp, talked with me recently about her first proper thriller, The Watcher, out now from Crooked Lane Books. You can find our interview over at Fiction Writers Review.
Back on November 19th, Heather Bartlett, Kathryn Henion, and I delivered a panel called “Total Submission: Understanding the Kinks and Quirks of Literary Magazines,” as part of the Spring Writes 2020 literary festival. The recording from that night’s panel is now up and running on YouTube. Check it out!
I have a new story up now at The Saturday Evening Post. It involves chain-smoking dance instructors, frotteurism, and a feral ex-girlfriend. (Thanks be unto Nick Gilmore, who runs the contemporary and classic fiction posts at the magazine.)
You should read David James Poissant’s debut novel, Lake Life. (It’s by the same guy who wrote the insanely, unimaginably good short story collection, The Heaven of Animals.) Check it out!
